A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11875657B2) outlines a computer-implemented method for detecting and managing incidents at venues using mobile devices and proximity recognition devices. The method involves detecting mobile devices, storing data related to their location and unique identifiers, determining incidents at the venue, generating events associated with these incidents, and identifying suspect devices based on proximity to recognition devices. The system alerts venue operators of suspect returns and provides images for identification. Remedial measures can be user-defined, such as alerts to venue operators or security personnel. The method also includes identifying persons associated with suspect devices and obtaining additional information about them, enhancing event data stored by the system.

Furthermore, the patent describes a system for proactively preventing article loss in venues by detecting mobile devices, determining incidents, and identifying suspect devices based on proximity to recognition devices. The system can alert venue operators of suspect returns and provide suspect images for identification. The method includes steps for processing external incident notifications and determining incidents based on user evaluations or rule-based computer systems. The system's operations are executed by processors programmed with computer instructions, enabling efficient incident management and suspect identification in venues using mobile devices and proximity recognition technology.
