Community pharmacist Jim Fields, an NCPA member and Purdue's Director of Law Enforcement Liaison and Education, Rick Zenuch, discuss pharmacy burglary theft and how to prevent it. They tour Fields' pharmacy in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, evaluating his security measures and discussing additional steps that can be taken to prevent burglary. The goal is to help pharmacists make their stores a harder target for thieves and educate them on how they can assist law enforcement in the event of a burglary.
