The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) has teamed up with the RxPatrol to offer a free training video to help ensure pharmacy safety. The video is an extension of the RxPatrol program that tracks and seeks to reduce the risk of pharmacy crime.
The video examines some of the most common pharmacy crimes across America. After the crime review it offers low cost tips for employees to secure pharmacy areas. For example, one tip is to verify the identification of anyone let into the pharmacy. The example in the video is a robber posing as a repair man who is able to enter the area without any verification of his identity.
The project of the RxPatrol is to gather crime data and work with law enforcement officials and crime stoppers to capture and prosecute criminals. The name stands for Rx Pattern Analysis Tracking Robberies and Other Losses. The free video is available through the following link:
