"Let's get physical?" - Is there ever a place for physical intervention within the retail security sector?


Your assistance with this PhD research, sponsored by The University of Portsmouth, is greatly appreciated and the information you provide will significantly aid my final thesis. The overall aim of the research is to explore the value of physical intervention (PI) within the retail security sector as a means of protecting employees, customers and retail property and goods.

To participate in the online questionnaire please send Ian Kirke your e-mail address ().

All respondents will receive a free electronic copy of the final piece of research (circa late 2013 / early 2014).
