Cannabis Security Panel at NECANN


Did you catch Keith McCuen and Tony Gallo on the Cannabis Security Panel at the New England Cannabis Convention?

If not, here’s a quick guide to a few key concepts that were covered during the panel!

1) What are some of the most important things for dispensaries in combating prevention loss?

  • The most important thing for dispensaries to do to combat losses is to develop a culture of honesty at your location. This means having a Zero Tolerance policy for any kind of theft. It also helps to follow proven Prevention policies and procedures.

2) Is internal theft a problem in this industry?

  • Internal theft is a problem for any and every retail environment. Well over 50% of all losses in the cannabis industry are from internal theft.

3) Should Cannabis be put away at night?

  • All cannabis and cannabis products should be secured in a TL rated Safe or Vault each night.

4) When transporting cannabis do you believe discrete transportation is best? How about when transporting money?

  • Discretion is optimal. Your policies for transporting cash and cannabis should mandate that all cash and product be secured in a safe installed in the vehicle.
