Store Detective CV

Store Detectives are inconspicuous enough to mingle with store floor customers until they accost you for attempting to shoplift merchandise from the store premises.  Just about all department stores and malls employ store detectives who have proven effective in minimizing shoplifting incidences from both customers and sales clerks. They are trained to implement security systems that include tag detecting systems and CCTV as well as confrontational skills to deter shoplifters in their tracks.
