Do you own a business? If so, then you know how important business security is, or you should know anyway. Good security is the only way to deter burglars from making your business their next target. A business security checklist can help you be sure that you are securing all of the vulnerable areas of your business.
A burglar will use whatever way they can to get into your business. So you want to be sure that you are taking away all of their ways to get in. Start a checklist of all the vulnerable areas of your business that need to be secured. Then list what you can do to secure those areas.
Here are some of the more important areas to secure for most any business.
• Doors leading into and out of your business.
• Windows that can be easily opened from the outside, including upper floor windows.
• The outdoors of your business need to be secured with motion sensor lighting, security system with security cameras and a perimeter alarm to alert you to anyone trying to get over your fence if you have one.
• The roof is also a vulnerable area for any business because many thieves will get onto the roof to find a way to get in.
These are just the major vulnerable areas that need to be secured. There could be others depending on your business and the building that it is in. Always take the time to learn what you can about business security so you can be sure your checklist is complete. One good way to learn is to read the many news stories that are always being done about this subject.
There was a news story done about how officers were providing residents and business owners with the tools needed to secure their home and business to keep intruders out. This news story can be found at, http://tinyurl.com/y87oe2o. In this news story they spoke to Malheur County Undersheriff Brian Wolfe.
He states, “Home security can often be taken for granted and a would-be thief will not take more than two minutes on average to break into a house. If an attempted break-in would be too loud or difficult, thieves will often choose another home or business.”
In this same news story they also spoke to Ontario Police Department Capt. Mark Alexander. He states, “Don’t make it easy for them. Make them go somewhere else.”
You want to remember that putting as many obstacles in the way will deter many burglars from trying to make your business their next target. It is always a good idea to take the time to make a security checklist so you know what all needs to be done.
Then take that business security checklist one step at a time until you have secured all of the vulnerable areas of your business. Don’t just assume that your business is secure; instead, do everything you can now to ensure that it is definitely secure. This is the only way you are going to deter burglars from getting into your business.
