How to Prevent Theft at Your Business
Burglaries at businesses have increased by 30% over the past year and we are seeing more and more burglaries at businesses than ever before.
Burglars typically work fast and want to get their loot as soon as possible. By making it hard for them to get into your business, you can deter them from breaking in or catch them if they do break in while you are still there!
The average burglary takes less than 5 minutes, so it’s important to make your business as hard for burglars as possible.
Burglars are looking for easy targets and will move on if they don’t find what they’re looking for quickly. Make sure there are no valuables visible from outside or inside your business, such as laptops or cash registers left out overnight.
Businesses need to make sure they have a alarm system set up.
One of the best ways to keep burglars from stealing from your business is by installing an alarm system. Alarm systems are inexpensive and easy to set up, and there are many options for them, including mobile apps that can alert you when there’s an intruder on the premises.
The right alarm system can help you catch a burglar in the act–and provide police with valuable evidence if they manage to get away before being caught!
- Make sure that you have an alarm system that’s hard to disable and sounds loud enough to alert people in the area if it is triggered.
- Make sure that any windows or doors leading into the building have good locks on them–and don’t forget about garage doors! A burglar will often try breaking into garages as well because they know most businesses keep valuables inside their cars parked inside those garages.
- Install a panic button or mobile app, so that if someone tries breaking in from outside, an alert goes out immediately via text message or phone call so someone can respond immediately.
Security cameras are a great way to catch someone in the act and help identify them.
They can also be used to help identify the vehicle they drove, or even the face or clothing of burglars.
If you have security cameras at your business, make sure they are positioned so that they capture as much detail as possible when recording video footage.
Security cameras provide crucial footage of any break-ins so that police can identify suspects and catch them red-handed (or rather black-gloved). Having clear video evidence makes it much easier for detectives at crime scenes because they know exactly what happened during each robbery attempt–and if there’s no footage available due diligence has been done beforehand by installing cameras around key areas such as entrances/exits doors where most criminals tend target first before moving inside house itself.”
Burglars will always try to find ways to get into your business if they can. But with the right alarm, cameras and mobile app, you can make it harder for them to do so. And that means less time spent worrying about burglaries and more time spent on running your business!
