Retail Surveillance Deterring crime, reducing losses and creating a safer environment


TVT web cover slider


It’s no secret that security breaches in the retail industry are on a rapid increase across South Africa.  “With a record high of 20 680 armed robberies against business recorded, South Africa is experiencing 57 attacks per day. This figure should prompt critical intervention by industries and governments,” says Richard Phillips, joint CEO of Cash Connect.


The increase in mall robberies has put most retailers on the defence. Moreover, it has created a considerable interest in surveillance systems that help combat such crime. According to Gino de Oliveira, TVT sales manager at Forbatt SA, TVT has designed a retail-focused solution after much input from retailers and chain store executives across the world. In this series, Forbatt SA offers the most reliable, high quality and user-friendly retail surveillance solutions. We discuss a selection of products and product features recommended for the retail market.
