Are you a business owner? If you are, then you need to know how imperative it is that you have a business security check done by your local police department. Most police departments offer this, but you may have to ask about it. The police will come to your business and check over all of your security.
They will then tell you what needs to be done to improve the security. They cover every aspect outside your business and inside. Their goal is to let you know all of the vulnerable areas of your business and how you can secure them against burglars.
Don’t ever assume that a burglar won’t hit your business because there is no way you can know this for sure. That is why it is always better to know what the vulnerable areas are so you can see to it that they are secured.
There are many vulnerable areas in and around a business that a burglar will use. By not securing these areas, you are giving them an invitation to enter. When there is a check done on your business, you will not only learn what these areas are, but how to fix it so they are not vulnerable anymore.
Here are some of the most vulnerable areas around any business.
• Doors and windows – This is the first way a burglar will use to get into the building.
• Fences and perimeter of your business
• Garage doors if there is one on your business.
• Roof of your building
It is always a good idea to not only get a security check done by the police, but to also learn all you can about it on your own. This will help you be more prepared for anything that may happen. One good way to learn is to read news stories because you can always learn a lot of useful information from them.
There was a news story done about the police doing business security checks for local businesses after there were three murders of local store clerks. The news story can be found at, http://tinyurl.com/yeo2vea. In this news story they spoke to Sergeant Raymond Reynolds of the Macon Police Department.
He states, “Unfortunately, it takes something horrific to make the business owner realize they do need to get these tools to make their business safer. We check the monitoring system, the video cameras, we check the lighting, the shrubberies and trees…We tell them techniques and ways they can make their business safer.”
It is very important to get a business security check done as soon as it can be arranged. Your business is vulnerable to burglars and other crimes being committed if you don’t have good security. Prevent this from happening at your business when possible and if it is not possible, than make sure you have a way for the police to identify the people responsible.
You are responsible for your safety and the safety of everyone that enters your business. That is why business security is so vital. Contact your local police department to find out if they offer business security checks today so you can be sure your business is as secure as it can be as soon as possible.
