National Retail Security Survey 2022

2022 National Retail Security Survey

NRF’s Retail Security Survey is an annual survey of retail loss prevention professionals that covers national retail security issues such as inventory shrink, employee integrity and organized retail crime. The report serves the retail and solution provider communities and our law enforcement partners, and helps informs policymakers and the media.

This year’s report found that retail shrink is an almost $100 billion problem. The study examines the key drivers of shrink as well as shifts in LP technology and other priorities.

The 2022 Retail Security Survey was conducted in partnership with the Loss Prevention Research Council and is sponsored by Appriss Retail.
