  • 0 reports: Retail loss prevention is a set of practices employed by retail stores to preserve profit and for the protection of assets. Profit preservation is any business activity specifically designed to reduce preventable losses. A preventable loss is any business cost caused by deliberate or inadvertent human actions, colloquially known as “shrink” this is the term widely used by retailers. Volitional human actions that cause loss to a retail store can be embezzlement, theft, fraud, vandalism, waste, abuse, time theft or misconduct. Inadvertent human actions attributable to loss are purely poorly executed business processes, where employees fail to follow existing policies or procedures. Loss prevention is mainly found within the retail sector but also can be found within other business environments such as cyber crime in the year 2014.

Since retail loss prevention is geared towards the elimination of preventable loss and the bulk of preventable loss in retail is caused by deliberate human activity, traditional approaches to retail loss prevention have been through visible security measures matched with technology such as CCTV and electronic sensor barriers. Most companies take this traditional approach by either having their own in house loss prevention team or they use external security agencies.  We can provide very professional loss prevention agents for any company, thus, saving expensive training.  Our loss prevention agents are either life long professionals who have major experience with retailers or active/retired/auxiliary officers who have  vast amounts of dealing with loss prevention.  Most retailers are looking for loss prevention agents to apprehend shoplifters, but sometimes there is more than what meets the eye. 70% of all profit loss from retailers is from none other than its own employee’s, we pride ourselves in apprehending those same employee’s as well.  Our loss prevention agents write impeccable reports and offer testimony favorable for any district attorneys office.  One fear retailers have is what is called, “bad stops” or illegal detentions.  We provide exemplary training for loss prevention agents and go by the golden rule, “if you didn’t see it, it didn’t happen.”  It is better to take a loss versus ending up in court over a false arrest action.

L.A. loss prevention is one of many of our services we offer to the private sector. Our team consists of active and or retired peace officers from Southern California law enforcement agencies who have vast experience in the field of loss prevention not only for retail stores but companies and corporations as well. If you are looking for professional loss prevention agents we have highly trained personnel who can easily carry out your objectives. All of our Loss Prevention Agents are highly trained, certified and licensed with a State of California, Consumer Affairs Guard card. If you are looking for temporary and or permanent positions to fill please email us at: .

Serial Rapist Convicted


Photo: Accused Rapist Melbrough Williams

SexOffender.LA reports: A Riverside County man, residing in the City of Murrieta is accused of allegedly raping and robbing women working as prostitutes, most of whom he found online as he perused websites looking for female escorts, has been ordered to stand trial, authorities said. Melbrough Williams Jr., 45, has pleaded not guilty to rape, robbery, kidnapping and other sex charges, Riverside County court records show. He is charged with raping five women and attempted to sexually assault a sixth. All but one of the assaults are alleged to have occurred in the City of Temecula or surrounding areas.

Riverside County Sheriff’s Investigator III S. Grassel was assigned the daunting task of tracking down a potentially unknown serial rapist operating within the County of Riverside. He painstakingly took the time to track down any victims and interview them ad nauseam as he was on his hunt for a serial rapist. Investigator Grassel eventually tracked down Melbrough Williams through a victim, by use of a photo line-up. Investigator S. Grassel had showed his first victim 7 photo lineups before she made a positive ID on Williams. DNA from Williams was found on the victim in her sexual assault examination. There were a total of 10 victims but only 6 of the 10 victims wanted to pursue official charges.

On July 27, 2012, Investigator S. Grassel successfully arrested Melbrough Williams for multiple counts of alleged sexual assaults and was held on a bail increase of $10,000,000.00 since his arrest. Over several months of, “good ole fashion police work” Investigator Grassel pitched his case to the Riverside County District Attorney’s office.  The investigation revealed Williams had been involved in this type of activity for over 10 years, his first known incident was October 2002. Since the arrest two other victims were located, one by a DNA hit and one who’s phone had been stolen during a robbery which was in the possession Melbrough Williams at the time of his arrest.

During the investigation, Investigator S. Grassel learned Melbrough Williams was a medically retired Los Angeles County Probation employee. Investigator S. Grassel proceeded with the case just like any other case he came across.Melbrough Williams was found guilty of seven felony sexual assault cases out of 12 felony counts he was originally charged with on June 16, 2014 Southwest Division of the Riverside County Superior Court. Melbrough Williams potentially faces approximately 95 years to life behind bars for his convictions. He faces sentencing in mid-July,

It is investigators like Investigator S. Grassel who are true policemen with a passion to hunt down potential serial rapists who are to be commended with the highest regard from society. SexOffender.LA brings you true stories from true policemen who are the very fabric of society, protecting women and children without regard to their very own safety. Investigator S. Grassel is an asset to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. His willingness to undertake such a feat is second to none. Our hat goes off to Investigator S. Grassel for performing such a heroic deed. We would also like to mention District Attorney Sean Crandall and District Attorney Ed Hansen who did an awesome job of taking an alleged serial rapist to trial and winning convictions on seven of the twelve counts against Melbrough Williams.

Phoenix Cop Murdered, Second Cop Wounded

Phoenix cop murdered, second cop wounded in a shootout with a violent felon during an undercover operation.  A Phoenix Police Officer, returned fire killing the suspect dead!  One officer has succumbed to his injuries and the other is listed in critical condition.  At the time of this article, it is unclear what the officers were investigating or what spurned the shooting other than the suspect was running on foot in an alley way when he turned on two plainclothes officers and started shooting.  The officer returned fire with one officer blasting the suspect out of his shoes where he fell dead in the alley.  The names of the officers have not been released as of yet.  Our prayers are with the officers involved and for their families and the Phoenix Police Department.  Please see the videos the Phoenix Police Department has provided.

Please remember to wear your vest and always be ready locked and loaded for such incidents!  Life on the street today in the year 2014 is tougher than ever and you must be in good physical condition and ready for the threat of life or death every second of the day during your tour of service.  Lastly, never chase a suspect on foot alone…always have a partner there with you for back up.  We realize this is not always possible but if it is then wait for the back up and do it together…those people are always there to catch…they can’t help committing crimes and showing their faces every time you turn around… in other words…you will catch them later…under better circumstances…

Global Positioning System

GPS: A Promising Solution that Fails To Protect and Serve the Public
Technological advancements have made tracking devices more effective and increased the ability to locate someone. These features led to the adoption of GPS tracking devices as part of the realignment plan initiated by the Californian Governor and took effect in October 2011. In a move to reduce overcrowding in state and county prisons, accused persons and paroled ones deemed to be non violent are required to have a GPS tracking device on them and are given strict regulations which incur penalties if violated. As far as reducing the number of people in prisons is concerned, the use of GPS tracking devices is effective. However, in terms of ensuring public security and preventing violations of regulations set for pre trials and pre releases it fails. First, there are no deterring penalties. Prior to the realignment plan, those who defaulted set regulations faced a year in state prison, this term has been reduced to just three months. On top of that many may be released earlier as a result of overcrowding. This factor further augments other failings of the GPS (Global Positioning System) tracking device. Here are reasons why GPS device is not suitable for pre-trials and pre-releases.

GPS Devices Does Not Stop Crime
Assuming a GPS device was effective as it should be, the most it would do is track the individual. It can tell the location of someone but cannot say if the person is committing a crime or not. This poses a risk on public security where released accused persons and paroled criminals can go on committing crimes within the vicinity or areas they are allowed by the regulations.

Insufficient Observation
The number of people with tracking devices and the geographical region they cover makes it a challenge for those watching over the individuals. Unless the people have a specific interest over the person being tracked, all hour round observation for every individual is not possible.

GPS Tracking Devices Can Be Removed
The number of individuals tampering and removing the global positioning system (GPS) trackers has increased at an alarming rate. Recent cases of crimes being committed by paroled and people released at pre trials have become rampant in California and many other states. Not only is the general public in danger but also the potential witnesses and former victims of the accused persons and criminals.The GPS tracking is clearly not effective in its main role to ensure appearance and protect public safety. There are too many things that can go wrong with GPS tracking to rely on it as an effective pre-release solution. On the other hand, the use of commercial bail bonds has consistently proven to be one of the most successful means of pre-trial release in use by 47 out of 50 states in the US. Furthermore, bail bonds does not cost the taxpayer one cent of public funds and keeps our streets safe by relying on financial and family-based incentives to keep someone charged with a crime accountable in a court of law. Orange County Bail Bonds has been providing bail bond services to the citizens of California for the past 50 years. If you or a loved one is in need of professional bail bonds, don’t hesitate to contact us or visit our site for more information.

Fullerton Officers Acquitted on all Counts

Fullerton Officers acquitted on all counts!  That’s right our justice system works once again as it has for the last 100 years!  Ladies & gentlemen, the jury has spoken! Law enforcement officers from around the world are rejoicing after hearing the good news of the verdicts.   Of course, there is always a handful of people who disagree with verdicts such as these but that is quite normal and actually very healthy for all.  Most lawyers and law enforcement officers know the true reasoning behind the acquittals when the layman John Q. Citizen lacks knowledge of the law as it pertains to most of the allegations and or the definitive value of the law.  Yes, we feel badly for the loss of a human life, however, it is imperative that society understands the police need not desist or retreat. In this particular case it goes back to simple police work and that is called training.  It was clear, the officers were just doing their job and implementing training and practical experience.

The standard of training in the State of California is second to none and for this reason we have some of the most highly trained police officers on planet earth.  There are many naysayers or haters in the world who basically have very limited knowledge of police procedure. So then, when the media exploits the solicited statements of people with little or no education then it would prove up a fruitless or unfair advantage against the police.  This same type of media frenzy has gone on for years and years.  The media outlets playing the same film footage over and over to the extent it is embedded in ones mind.  This type of journalism again is an unfair advantage to the police and will most likely never go away.  Why?  Well, simply said journalist are covered under the United States Constitution and the first time any of them are questioned they always seek this pleading.  Therefore, what happens is these types of cases the police officer suffers great ridicule from society even after being acquitted by a jury of his/her peers.

Without even naming names here…it is clear even family members do not clearly understand the law, if they did they would surely understand the reasons for the acquittal.  Not to belabor this whole situation but instead to report the aforementioned true information which we all now know to be true.  For over zealous prosecutors to attempt to take advantage of police officers while stooping to pressure from naysayers might get them to rethink their tactics.  As far as the F.B.I. goes, they have already investigated this matter and if there were anything to be brought forward it would have already been done.  This is clearly not a civil rights violation case, it is merely a person who resisted the lawful efforts of a law enforcement officer to affect an arrest, nothing more.

Our hearts go out to everyone in the matter and no punches held here, it is what it is and we have to accept our legal system as is.  We do extend our sincere apologies to the entire family for their great loss, it saddens us deeply, however we can only go forward and promote peace and harmony.  Our lives must go onward and the Fullerton Officers should be returned to work immediately with full back pay and benefits.

Sheriff Baca Resigns

Los Angeles County Sheriff Baca told news reporters he is throwing in the towel Tuesday, January 7, 2014.  Sheriff Baca 71, is giving up his post as Sheriff of Los Angeles County in the midst of a widespread corruption scandal inside one of his own jails.  Why would Sheriff Baca abandon his post now?  Well, we are shocked he would bail on his department when they need him the most during troubling times when at least 18 of his deputies were recently charged with various crimes mostly by federal authorities.  It would seem most of the charges levied against the 18 deputies are pretty weak and will likely cost the fine citizens of Los Angeles County millions in pay out settlements in the end.  Bob Olmstead an aggressive forerunner for the position of Sheriff has been outspoken about corruption within the jail system. Now then, I interviewed Bob Olmstead a few months ago and it was agreed if a deputy as an example violates policy and or any law he/she should be dealt with accordingly.  While I thought this is a fair assessment, Bob related he is for fairness and each case should be looked at on an individual basis.  However, it was also agreed, that if a deputy commits a minor violation the discipline should fit and be assessed as progressive discipline.

Again, a fair assessment by Bob and a good one at that!  Here is the problem as I see it, it appears Sheriff Baca has imposed harsh discipline upon jail deputies including termination when it is unwarranted.  Why, because he buckled under pressure to do something…and his something is wrong….This my friends is very wrong as every deputy should be treated fairly under due process of law, specifically under AB 301, the Officers Bill of Rights! We are familiar with at least one wrongful termination in where the deputy was terminated without cause and it looks as though the deputy is soon to be reinstated and it will cost the county an exorbitant amount of money.  So there is no mistaken, Bob is talking about corruption such as assault and or battery under the color of authority or some serious violation…not a deputy taking to long of a lunch period or a deputy leaving off shift 15 minutes early.  Bob is speaking of real corruption in where the current administration has failed to act.  As it looks, Sheriff Baca has succumbed to political pressure to resign immediately.  Bob Olmstead, former Commander is seeking election as the new Los Angeles County Sheriff and is said to be the frontrunner as we speak.  We indorse Bob Olmstead, a leader with the foresight to report corruption and not afraid to speak out for the rights of others.  Bob is a cops cop and he is what we call real!  A real cop who will shine as Los Angeles County Sheriff, for all the people, no matter their race or religion.  Furthermore, Bob is not only a leader but an innovator  with great insight into the county and its vision to succeed.  We will probably never know why Sheriff Baca threw in the towel and abandoned his department so suddenly, however, what we do know is Bob Olmstead has long taken the stance he will gladly accept the position and take command as Sheriff.  Los Angeles County citizenry does not need a quitter, they need a winner like Bob Olmstead who is a stand up, badge carrying, gun carrying real Sheriff who will protect us from all evil.

Citizens Complaint

Citizens complaint forms are available upon request at any law enforcement agency within the State of California and most other states as well.  Unfortunately, there are times when the citizenry will file complaints for a wide number of reasons.  Most law enforcement agencies say they welcome personnel complaints but realistically they do not like them and often times attempt to conceal and or discourage citizens from filing written complaints.  A lot of times even if the citizen does file a written complaint, those complaints will sometimes not make it to their destination and or are intentionally disposed of.  Part of the problem with not filing a complaint is the fact the officer will most likely keep doing whatever it was from the onset of things and will not change his/her ways.  Now then, if the complaint is not properly documented then it will be difficult later to understand or discuss the matter in an administrative setting.  We constantly receive calls from citizens who make allegations of wrong doing by the police.  Peace Officers in the State of California are heavily protected as they should be, however, there have been many instances the officer was held to answer and or disciplined and in some cases outright fired.

If you need assistance on how to properly file a complaint and or need something investigated call us first, we have vast experience in dealing with law enforcement and their administration counterparts.  Moreover, we were once police administrators and surely know what to do if you need to lodge a complaint.  The complaint must be valid before we will get involved.  Meaning, any allegations in where a complaint is to be filed, it will have to be reviewed by us prior to making such a complaint. Please email us and or call us immediately so we can go over things and discuss your chances of having the complaint sustained. Remember, we are searching for the truth of the matter and to be objective versus subjective.  Most deputy sheriffs and or police officers are professional in all that they do, however, there are a small percentage who seem to believe they are above the law.  “Nobody is above the law!”
