On Tuesday November 17th, NYPD’s 5th and 1st Precinct held a Loss Prevention Seminar for SoHo Broadway retailers in advance of the upcoming holiday shopping season.
Police Officer Rodney Rosado (NYPD-5th Precinct) made a presentation on recent crime trends in the 5th Precinct, shared best practices for loss prevention staff who interact customers and reviewed crime prevention strategies for retailers. Officer Rosado was joined by his counterpart at the 1st Precinct, Police Officer George Liropoulos, who shared information on trends within the 1st Precinct and plans for an increased presence along Broadway during the holiday season. In addition to learning effective loss prevention strategies, retailers had a chance to network with peer SoHo Broadway retail professionals.
The Initiative gives a special thanks to the NYPD’s 1st and 5th Precincts for organizing the workshop and looks forward to hosting similar events for the SoHo Broadway retail community in 2017.
