2022 Retail Security Survey Report

The State of National Retail Security and Organized Retail Crime

Retail shrink added up to nearly $100 billion in losses for retailers in 2021. How are retail loss prevention teams addressing the key drivers of the security risks causing retail shrink?

The National Retail Federation surveyed a cross-section of retail loss prevention professionals to study the causes of shrink, shifts in loss prevention tactics, the impacts of organized retail crime (ORC), adoption of retail fraud technology to assist in shrink management, and other priorities. The survey, conducted in partnership with the Loss Prevention Research Council and sponsored by Appriss Retail, found the average shrink rate of 1.4% is driven primarily by shoplifting, ORC, and employee theft. However, of most concern is the 26.5% increase in ORC incidents.
