Some physical security measures include:
• Limiting signage on windows to increase natural surveillance by the public.
• Lowering shelving through the store so workers can see threats.
• Making sure the cash register area can be seen from outside the store.
• Using curved or convex mirrors at hallways and areas of concealment.
• Ensuring adequate lighting inside and outside the store.
• Placing height markers on door frames to better identify offenders.
• Installing sensors and alarms (including door detectors) that alert staff when a customer enters.
