With a rise in theft and break and enters, more businesses are being impacted by these kinds of offences and operations are being disrupted. With the use of technology, many of these attacks can be prevented. Taking steps to secure your business should be a top priority.
Using Surveillance Cameras
Sometimes surveillance cameras can be overlooked; however, research shows that offences such as burglary and vehicle crime were lower in areas where surveillance cameras were in use. If a crime does occur, the footage from the surveillance cameras can be used to assist police with their investigations. But the majority of criminals are put off if there is a good chance they are being watched.
To get the most out of your CCTV, it is vital that your surveillance cameras are placed at all entrances of a business. This allows your camera to capture the highest quality footage of anyone entering or exiting your business. Security cameras should be placed so that they will be able to pick up the face of an individual as well as any unique characteristics, clothing or item’s that may be being carried.
Design To Reduce Robberies
Design can massively influence the amount of crime a business may face. Consider the cash handling procedures, ensuring good viability is managed around the business premises, limit entry and exits from the buildings and keep only a minimum amount of money on-site at any time. You can hire guards when buildings are empty or set up security hardware systems that include alarms as well as surveillance cameras.
The Power Of Light
Many businesses have the issue that their building is situated in a dark area. By increasing light and visibility around the external areas of your building, you can help prevent crime and make identification of people around your premises easier.
