If you are working in a library then you probably already know that the most commonly stolen items (and the ones that will benefit most from a library theft detection system) are magazines. I had a friend explain to me that magazines are most current and have pictures and other pieces of information that people want to keep for them selves.
It actually makes a lot of sense to me. In my years of retail security, I frequently found magazines as one of my top stolen items. I would have employees reading them in the break room and then take them home, I had customers flip through the pages for a recipe and then tear that page out. Thousands of dollars in losses each year came directly from our magazine rack.
Using Checkpoint systems as the library theft detection system of choice greatly reduces the number of theft incidents each year- regardless of employee theft (intentionally or otherwise) and customer theft. When you affix a library theft prevention label to the magazine you are sending a signal that the magazine is being monitored. Secondly, if someone ignores or doesn’t see the label, the alarms will sound, just like in a store, that the magazine has not been properly checked out.
