It still would be more appropriate in my view to be in a uniform for safety reasons, she may have acted differently. If they continue to use this company and these tactics, I will gladly shop elsewhere.
I'm sorry but there are other cases in which these "loss prevention officers" are abusing their power and there needs to be something done about it before I go and spend my hard earned money at a place that employs these people. I am sure the prices at the co-op have also been raised to afford their salaries as well. There are other cases of these officers misinterpreting paying customers and actions in the store that the officer viewed as wrong (AKA screwing a loose cap back on a juice bottle and putting it back on the shelf that wasn't originally loosened by this same customer, yet the officer followed her out to her car in a intimidating fashion told her she was not allowed to do this) So I wish to have a non-invasive shopping experience via passive shoplifting control. I will be shopping at Eureka Natural Foods, where Chris the manager personally informed me that they used to outsource their security and now is done internally. They call police if necessary and yes that does not work perfectly every time but oh well, stores like these have insurance in times of loss. I am sorry that smaller businesses have to endure greater loss in times like this but the perp should not have his or her life threatened via excessive force. Let the people in uniform handle it. I do not condone shoplifting nor the use of excessive force.
