Other potential duties
In some places you will not actually be working for a supermarket/shop as a loss prevention officer but with a security company. In this case you will act as a sort of emissary between the two companies, the manager of the shop you are working in will come to you if they are having problems with their assigned security officers and if they are not happy with them then they will want you to report that to the manager. In other words you will not only be a store detective but you will also be acting within a supervisory role also.
C.C.T.V may be in place in which case experienced agents will monitor for losses.
