We have multiple security guards contracted from a private company. They mostly come in during the first shift. We have about 3 regular security guards throughout the week. And then in the second shift, we have mostly police officers come in. They aren't regulars. One cop would come in, and I wouldn't see them for two weeks.

 WOW - WEEEEE your store must be in the biggest ghetto fest / third world market, war torn area around! They're spending $$ on off duty cops?? 

Next move will be to save money---and just close the fuk DOWN confuse

    Our store has a security guard. Their days and hours are not set because They don't want customers and employees to no when to expect them and when not to or get comfortable on when they'll be there. Sometimes they are there in the morning and sometimes they're there in the evening.

One of the 3 stores i've worked in had a security guard, and he was from a third party company that they contracted out with. He would be there from about 4pm until the store closed at midnight. This was in a store in Dayton.

We have security guards on various days. They are there only like 3 days a week including weekends. They ALWAYS leave about an hour before the store closes.

I asked the head loss prevention chick named HEATHER in my district one time why they leave before the store closes and she said she only needs them there during the times she thinks is appropriate. She said she didn't think they need to be there until store closing. 

So obviously the security isn't there for security reasons.  They don't stay until close and they aren't allowed to stop people from stealing. It's all just for show. They don't give 2 ****s about the employees

None of the stores in my district have security guards. Most of those are in the stores closer to Houston. I know of one store in D6 that has an actual cop all day. 2 actually, one in the store, and one in his car in the parking lot. It's a fun store as you can imagine. Most of the other stores with security are contracted out, and are there pretty much all day. Some even stayed overnight when we still had 24 hour stores.

We have a security guard in the afternoon during the busier (i.e. high theft) days though one of people who works those shifts is a little old lady in her 60's, I have absolutely no idea how she'd be able to stop someone from shoplifting.

We recently got our first security guard. Primarily stays near the secondary doors, the ones not visible to anyone unless they're working frozen. It was amusing to hear how many of the customers comnented on how they thought it was unnecessary. They're absolutely right, the copious amount of liquor being ran out of those doors isnt an issue.
