5.0 out of 5 stars The best reference on the subjects yet compiled March 17, 2008
Format:Hardcover
This work of Mr. Sennewald and Mr. Christman has surpassed anything yet published
on Loss Prevention and Retail Security. Every Security/LossPrevention professional should own a copy, and, where possible, provide a copy for each store Security Department. A much needed addition to any retail security professional's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charles A. Sennewald--the Best August 13, 2013
Format:Hardcover
This review is written about "Retail Crime, Security, and Loss Prevention--An Encyclopedia." I sincerely believe that this is one of the best books, if not the best one, that can be found on the subject. Dr.Sennewald hired me as a Special-Agent/Investigator for the Broadway Dept. Stores in 1971 when he was a Security Manager for Carter-Hawley-Hale, Broadway Dept. Stores. I and many others received excellent training under Charles Sennewald and his managerial subordinates. It was not long before Dr.Sennewald became the Director of the Security Department. At the time of my being hired, a whole new Loss Prevention Program was being launched. The emphasis was on prevention; however, that did not, in any way, exclude arrests and restitutions. I must say that our Security Department under Dr.Sennewald's direction was highly professional, efficient, and trustworthy. Charles A. Sennewald ran a tight ship, and I am glad he did. I have always been proud to have worked under Dr.Sennewald. From Gilbert Paul Siegmund

The author is well known and highly respected. He and his co-author have produced a body of knowledge re retail security that will be an excellent resource for retail security management, risk managers, retail executives and loss prevention services. I would highly recommend Mr. Sennewald's text in a security management undergraduate or graduate curriculum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough January 28, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This isn't a book one reads like a novel, but the content makes an eager security professional want to absord all of it. It is a literally a sizable volume.

As to the question of learning something, there is a good combination of theory and practical aspects that will assist the the consultants and instructors alike.

Highly recommended for the career professional.
