There are a number of ways for shopping centers, shopping plazas, and other types of retail properties to prevent loitering, a common problem at many businesses. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) defines loitering as people hanging around a place of business, inside or outside, without buying something.

They identified three issues associated with loitering:

  1. It can discourage customers coming to a place of business
  2. It can lead to harassment and other problems.
  3. It can create a bad image for your retail property
