Small business's have lately seen a rise in break-ins.
While there is no solid evidence as to why, it may be due to the assumption that a small business is more likely to have little to no security measures in place - in comparison to larger corporations. Afterall, it is no surprise that theifs are going to target places they believe they can get away with their crime.
It's also important to remember that its not just your stock/cash/etc. that can come under threat - staff can also get caught in the mix - and the last thing you want is an employee to become a victim to theft or potentialy get hurt.
So the main question is - "how can i make my small business safe, and a deterrant to potential theives?"
What you need will depend on your business.
The simplest and one of the most effective ways of securing your small business is an alarm system. In the scheme of things, these can be quite reasonably priced depending on your needs and can come with the added extra of 24/7 monitoring should you desire it.
Another system that can be highly beneficial is CCTV Cameras. Not only will the treat of being caught on film deterr theives, you will also have solid evidence should an event arrise. A large majority of break ins are not solved - purely due to lack of physical evicence. The presence of cameras will allow your business a much greater chance of deterring, and catching theives if necessary.
Lastly, if your staff have to walk long distances after dark to get to their car - it could be worth looking at getting a security guard at closing time to escort staff from your business to their car. Knowing your staff can leave the premesis safely will not only be greatly appreciated on their behalf, but also will ensure you will not be left liable for any potential incidents that occur as a result.
