What’s Happened to Pharmacy Crime Since the Crackdown on Opioids?

Online Webinar

In the midst of what has been a “crisis of prescription drug addiction”, data indicate that pharmacy burglaries and robberies are occurring less frequently than in the past. How significant is the shift? Will this continue? What does history tell us? Why should the pharmacist care?

Upon completion of this activity, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Describe pharmacy crime trends in the United States and implications for the retail pharmacist.
  • Assess the risk of crime in a pharmacy.
  • Identify measures that can be taken to prevent burglaries and actions that should be taken in an armed robbery.

Upon completion of this activity, technicians should be able to:

  • Describe pharmacy crime trends in the United States and implications for the retail pharmacist.
  • Be able to assist the pharmacist in identifying crime risks in a pharmacy.
  • List three actions that should be taken in an armed robbery.
