Job Description for Asset Protection Associate

Asset protection associates, also known as "loss prevention associates" (or simply “loss prevention”), are employed primarily by retail businesses to prevent items from being lost due to theft. These associates are generally responsible for external theft (theft by shoppers/consumers), but may cover incidents of internal theft (within the company), as well. The main objective in this position is to create a safe environment for all employees and customers while also protecting the goods, also referred to as “assets," of the retail location. The work generally includes both physical and mental elements, and some are expected to work at the location itself to watch for suspicious or potentially dangerous situations that may arise. Locations outfitted with security cameras may also require the asset protection associate to view and monitor shopping areas from a behind-the-scenes vantage point. The need to remain aware and alert at all times can be both physically and mentally demanding, and some situations, such as those in which actual theft has been identified, may require physical apprehension and detainment.
