Store Detective CV Template

All malls and department stores employ Store Detectives who are tasked to implement and enforce store security systems and procedures to protect sales inventory from shoplifters whether from the sales staff or from customers.  Wearing regular clothes, store detectives mix with shoppers and are trained to spot suspicious shoplifting behavior.  But unlike police, store detectives do not make arrests but simply apprehend and detain shoplifters. It is often incumbent on the mall administrator to get them arrested if they cannot pay for the shoplifted items or simply set first time offenders free.
