Surveying / encuesta sobre seguridad
English term or phrase: Organized Retail Crime/Criminals
Hola a todos! Estoy traduciendo una encuesta sobre seguridad en empresas, cómo prevenir robos y qué hacer en esos casos. Incluyo parte del contexto donde aparecen los términos que tengo duda. Lo encontré como "crimen organizado contra minoridtas", pero no estoy segura, la referencia no es suficiente. Muchas gracias como siempre, Saludos

Organized Retail Crime doesn’t necessarily look like a scene from The Godfather or The Sopranos. But organized retail criminals do come into your store acting like they own the place, and clean out large quantities of high dollar products to resell. Show them who’s boss with a greeting, and an offer to help. And don’t forget, your Manager has your back!

"minoristas" excluiría a las grandes superficies. (los que roban rompiendo los escaparates se llaman "bandas de aluniceros"
