SAFE Retail Destination

It’s no secret that to compete in today’s marketplace, shopping centers have to be compelling destinations. Designation as a certified SAFE Retail Destination is proof of your shopping center’s high standards and commitment to delivering the best possible experience for visitors, retailers and employees alike.

´All our centers should be SAFE Retail Destinations. Period.´
´Recently, our head of security met the head of security of one of our major tenants – for the first time. We realized we needed to work together because our tenant was having a huge problem with loss, theft, embezzlement, and loss of staff – all in supposedly ‘safe’ shopping centers.´
´Store personnel complain and are afraid to work by themselves. It can be hard to find people to hire. Either they don’t want to work at this location or the union says they can’t work alone after 7pm.’
´Before signing a lease, we want to know the shopping center maintains a certain standard of safety.´
´Tenants and management need to be better at talking to each other. We need to start bringing security into the discussions during contract negotiations.´
´Right now the responsibilities for safety are split between the shopping center and the tenants. Everyone’s doing their own thing and we need to start working together.’
´Our asset management company claimed they were operating our centers according to best practice. After implementing the standard, we know what they are doing and  have a common language for discussing our requirements’
‘Our ambition is to become the international benchmark for safe shopping centers, but as Security Manager I’ve gone as far as I can with what I know how to do. There are things I simply haven’t thought of, and I realized we needed outside help.’
‘We are happy to have our work validated by a third party. By being transparent, we can quantify the high level of service we deliver. This sets us apart from other less professional companies’
