Advancing Retail Safety with Reveal Body Cameras

In recent years, the retail industry has faced a significant upsurge in crime and antisocial behavior, presenting challenges that extend far beyond financial losses. While the National Retail Federation’s 2023 Retail Security Survey reported the average shrink rate in the fiscal year 2022 rose to 1.6 percent, translating to a staggering $112.1 billion in losses, there was also the not-so-small matter of 88 percent of retailers reporting that shoplifters have become more aggressive and violent and the negative impact that this is having on employees on the shopfloor.

In the bustling world of retail, where change is the only constant, ensuring safety and security is a collective endeavour in which technology has an ever more important role to play. Reveal is at the forefront of addressing these challenges with cutting-edge body camera solutions, designed to deter crime and provide a reassuring presence on the retail floor. Our unique body cameras, characterized by their front-facing screens, have proven to be an effective tool in de-escalating potential conflicts, thereby enhancing the overall safety of retail spaces. In conjunction with our advanced digital evidence management software, DEMS 360, Reveal offers a comprehensive security solution that not only deters incidents, but also aids in documenting evidence for the successful prosecution of retail crimes.

As Reveal has expanded globally, we’ve observed firsthand how retail security challenges resonate across borders, from the bustling streets of the UK to the expansive malls of the US. This global insight has refined our solutions, ensuring they’re robust, adaptable, and effective, no matter the setting. Central to our success is our unwavering commitment to collaboration. By actively listening to our customers, diving deep into their unique challenges, and crafting tailored solutions, we’ve established durable partnerships throughout the retail industry.
