    Never been in this line of work but know folks that are in this line of work, it appears the policies in loss prevention are universal in all companies.  Before you make an apprehension, to protect the company, you first have to witness the perp taking the merchandise, never lose sight of them, wait for them to exit the store without paying but still remaining on company property then confront them without any physical contact.  Some companies will call the police others will make you sign an citation so if you are a repeat offender, the company can press charges.  A very thankless and frustrating job I have been told.
