Internal and external security measures of the installations

A common MO (Modus Operandi) for burglaries is “forced entry” or “smash and grab”. The plan usually involves little more than getting in and out quickly, and it usually causes a significant amount of property damage. Sometimes a brick/stone/rock (often one found in the business landscaping itself) is used to break the glass to gain entry. Often an indiscreet tool is used to open the doors of the company (this happens frequently at backdoors). Other times the criminals will use a vehicle, usually a stolen vehicle, to drive through the storefront. These criminals know that even if the company has an alarm system, there is a delay due to the alarm company having to call the police and the police being dispatched and having to drive there , so they have time to grab as much as they can quickly can and get out. Still, there are steps you can take, both inexpensive and expensive, that will make your business a harder target.

Lighting – make sure your business has adequate lighting inside and out, even during hours when it is not open. This allows your surveillance cameras to capture better views of anything happening on your property. and also prevents possible the criminals to use the darkness to hide.

The glass can be reinforced with security film and/or bars/doors to help prevent the glass from being broken. go in Your establishment.

security guards

A recent study by the National Retailers Association found that shoplifters rated security guards as the most effective theft deterrent. Generally, the security guard is the first person customers/patients see when they enter a facility. So what do you look for when hiring a security guard?

Is your security guard friendly and does he display good customer service skills? Can they relate to your customers/patients? What is their background and level of experience? Do they have a good command presence that said, “it’s not the company that criminals want to target”? Do they keep away the “bad guys” and customers/patients who want more? A guard with the above skills and traits is worth the extra cost. Having an untrained and unskilled person with a gun can be more of a liability than no guard at all. Choose wisely. Even the best-trained security guard cannot prevent everything but doing nothing/having no plan can be considered negligence. It is strongly recommended that you consult your legal advisor.
