Loss prevention is an art. In California, merchants who own a store have a legal privilege to detain,
investigate and arrest suspects who shoplift or steal from the location. The merchant privilege is a
technical area of law that any security officer needs to understand in depth. This class provides
instruction on the legal arena surrounding lawful detentions; probable cause for arrest; when to obtain
a statement from a suspect; when police must be called and burden of proof issues to maintain a
successful prosecution. More advanced report writing techniques are incorporated into this course.
The class provides insight from experienced investigators who have worked in both law enforcement
and in the loss prevention industry. This class has a written exam and upon successful completion, a
certificate will be issued.
