When you choose Shergroup Security as your integrated security provider, you are choosing a company with heritage and integrity.

The gradual rise of online shopping alternatives has driven brick and mortar retail sites around the world to place a greater emphasis on the guest experience. As a result, there is a greater emphasis on both a safe and secure shopping environment.

Retail Security Services

It’s a sad truth that the retail business inevitably experiences theft at some point in time. According to the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention, more than $50 billion worth of merchandise is stolen from businesses each year, equating to nearly $45 million every day. Shoplifters are universal and taking precautions within a store might help you keep your cash flowing. The danger of theft varies depending on the type of business and the type of product. Jewellery and technology stores, for example, maybe more vulnerable to theft since their products are more expensive.

Detection, apprehension, and prevention of shoplifting have become essential tasks for retailers. Due to the rapid evolution of the retail environment as a result of e-commerce and the globalisation of the business, many retailers have intensified their focus on shoplifting. Loss prevention can be greatly benefited by using a security solution that is tailored to your company’s needs. Through vigilant surveillance and prompt action, loss prevention decreases the amount of theft and shrinkage within a business. Your business will feel safer and more secure about how the store is managed if you have a loss prevention security system in place.

Implement anti-theft security systems to keep your retail business secured. Reach out to specialist security service providers like Shergroup who have vast experience in the retail sector. From loss prevention at store locations and distribution sites to courteous but vigilant attention at corporate headquarters, we provide retail security services for every element of the retail company. Each situation necessitates a unique strategy and solution from uniformed officers and electronic surveillance cameras to monitored alarms and patrol officers.

Retail security systems 

Let’s dive into some of the most comprehensive security systems to keep your retail outlet secured.

Security Guards |

At Shergroup we believe that there is no substitute for security guards services. Having a trained and experienced security guard on-site can deter criminals, keep customers safe and respond immediately to emergencies. Our guards are professional and know how to deal with both internal and external security threats. They can take care of threats such as shoplifting, loitering, gang activity, parking lot incidents, with professionalism that is always mindful of our client’s image. Our security guards are efficient, alert, and vigilant and produce real-time daily activity reports. These reports are available for both the managing supervisor and for you to check with real-time on-site metrics.

Monitored Alarms |

Alarms are a great way to keep your retail outlet secured. It not only protects businesses from break-ins but also helps in deterring intruders. When a monitored alarm system is activated, a set of sensors connected to a primary control unit generates alerts, which can be sound only, receive messages, or be monitored by an external centre (Alarm Receiving Centre). This centre monitors activity and, if necessary, may be linked to police action. If the worst happens and your business suffers a break-in or a fire, an alarm system is frequently the fastest method to learn about it.

Monitored alarm systems are an important aspect of your operating strategy since they give additional security against damage as well as additional safety for your employees. A monitored alarm system is suitable for premises with a large footfall, as well as any business – as knowing your business is being monitored externally, can give you extra peace of mind.


CCTVs are a must if you’re into a retail business. CCTV is a security system that allows you to monitor and safeguard your property against any unforeseen happening in and around your premises. Shoplifters would not take a risk to do anything that can be caught in the CCTV camera and gets them into legal trouble.

CCTV is one of the most recognised security systems that your business can use. The CCTV cameras start recording footage as soon as they detect motion. Most of the CCTV cameras work on a mechanism where they transmit the recording to you with a phone alert of what’s happening at your premises. The best CCTV camera for you is the one that has facial recognition, two-way audio, and night vision.

These surveillance cameras have two-fold benefits, it helps in discouraging the intruders from breaking in and second even if a forbidden burglary takes place, it becomes easier to catch the culprits after watching the video recording. The best bit of having your property secured with a CCTV camera is that they are pocket friendly and don’t require much in terms of maintenance.

K9 Security |

K9 security dogs are highly in demand. Their loyalty, intelligence, and heightened senses make them uniquely qualified to quickly assess threats and protect people. A K9 security team is transportable, extremely responsive, and serves as a visible deterrent to potential criminals. The most significant benefit of having a K9 security dog is that it can respond in seconds at every level of the “use of force” continuum. Trained security canines are more effective than people or machines when it comes to security. Their sense of smell and hearing makes them detect strange noises and odours in seconds. So, if anyone enters your retail outlet with criminal intentions, carrying explosives or guns will be traced by the security canines in seconds. Today security K9 units are being used by schools, airports, hospitals, shopping malls, and they also assist police and other law enforcement officers in their work.


Over the years, Shergroup has expanded its presence in the commercial security sector by providing efficient and effective security solutions that respond to our clients’ priority needs. Whether you’re a small neighbourhood business, a national grocer, or a multinational department store, the safety of your employees, store, and assets is your full responsibility. We recognise that each type of retailer has unique requirements; a small-town boutique, for example, has a different layout, staff size, compliance regulations, and location than a huge department store with many locations. We’ll work with you to design, build, and maintain a cutting-edge security system that’s tailored to your store’s specific needs, so you can focus on what matters: running a successful and safe business.

From security guards to monitored alarms and from CCTV cameras to security K9s, we have the most perfect security solution that can be customised to keep your property, stock, and staff as safe as possible.
