This survey conducted by FMI and Axis Communications identifies key trends in video.

With IP video, food retailers and other stakeholders are doing more for their stores.
This report by FMI and Checkpoint Systems, Inc. looks at the issues of employee theft, shoplifting, organize retail crime and other forms of theft in food retail. This year’s report shows a decline in average shrink and demonstrates that loss prevention is back on track as the economy rebounds. Retailers are training their associates more, curbing internal theft and fighting back against shoplifting and organized retail crime. All signs point to a strong loss prevention initiative that will continue into the future.
The FMI Asset Protection Council is made up of senior level asset protection executives from a diverse mix of FMI member retailers and wholesalers. These executives advise, guide and support various FMI activities related to asset protection, loss prevention, crisis management, cyber security, risk management, operations and safety.
