Workplace violence in retail is at historic highs. 87% of retailers in 2022 reported a violent incident in stores, and 76% of these incidents involved an assault on a store associate. Unfortunately, these incidents are having catastrophic effects on life as nearly 600 fatalities occurred in retail locations in 2022.
As violence continues to rise and retailers feel under-supported from local and federal agencies, retail security teams have been thrust into the frontlines of mitigating workplace violence.
Enter Axon and the Axon ecosystem. Axon is a global public safety technology provider with solutions such as body-worn cameras, TASERs, and SaaS. Axon’s technology is deployed at every major US city, federal and national law enforcement agencies, as well as global law enforcement agencies. As security concerns have increased beyond public safety, Axon’s solutions are now being adopted by private organizations including some of the largest retailers globally to help mitigate risk, deter and de-escalate potential incidents, and protect frontline employees from workplace violence.
In this webinar on March 22 at 1 p.m. ET, Mike Shore will explain how Axon and the Axon ecosystem of integrated technology can be a force multiplier to current retail security operations to help keep your associates and customers safe. Mike will also outline Axon’s vision for retail and ask for participation in a groundbreaking research project that will help define the future of retail security.
At the end of the webinar, Axon will award five LPF scholarships to attendees by random drawing.
This webinar is presented by the LPF in partnership with Axon and qualifies for 1 CEU towards your LPC or CFI recertification.
