Retail Theft Awareness Training

CCTVBallymena Retailers Against Crime (BRAC) has agreed, under a Service Agreement with the Ballymena BID Co, to extend the Retail Theft Awareness Training that has been available to BRAC Radio Link Members, to include BID members.

The training for retail staff covers general recognition awareness training and how to deter potential thefts using a variety of techniques.

The training can be delivered in-store and at times suitable for the business. A number of visits can be made with training delivered to two or three staff at a time if this is more convenient for the retailer. Each session is approximately 30 minutes.
