The Dixie Pawn trade show took place this week. Pawn owners and industry experts from the southern region came into New Orleans to learn and network. Rolland president, Rick Rolland, put on a seminar on Defeating Criminal Behavior in the Pawn Industry. The Pawn industry is unique in many ways and has many unique security needs.
Rick’s presentation highlighted a series of scenarios, asking: are you smarter than a criminal? The basis of the presentation was that threats certainly exist and continue to evolve as criminals change tactics, but there are solutions, and the threat is manageable.
The threats covered included internal theft, armed robbery and sophisticated burglary attacks. Rick brought solutions to the table such as employee vetting techniques, proper placement of security cameras and compartmentalization of your assets.
