Has your business been affected by crime?
Whether through fraud, shoplifting, vandalism or robbery, transgressions against your company can make you feel like closing the doors and heading for the hills to live a solitary existence.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Before you turn over large profits and retire to the south of France with a supermodel in tow, however, there are more mundane things to consider.
To make a real success of your business, it’s important opportunistic thieves are not gnawing away at your profits faster than a beaver who’s guzzled an energy drink.

Invest In Electric Fencing
It may seem overly protective, but electric fencing is designed to deliver a short and safe shock to would-be intruders, keeping them where they belong: away from your property. In addition, aside from the shock, a fence itself offers a great visual deterrent to those with nefarious thoughts.

If your business is lagging behind technologically, CCTV is a shrewd investment. Not only will its mere presence make camera shy criminals think twice, but if they do happen to go for it, their ugly mug will, hopefully, be captured on camera, making things a little bit easier for the police to accost them.
Set Up an Alarm
If a crafty criminal has somehow circumvented your electric fencing, dodged CCTV and made it in to your premises, you need an alarm system in place to send out a signal if your business is breached. This is typically done by using motion detectors to gauge any unauthorised movement inside.

While we can all agree that technology is great, it’s often necessary to have a human security measure in place in case things go awry. Step forward your new security guard. Before rushing into a decision, though, make sure you’re hiring an accredited professional to protect your premises.

Admittedly, there’s much more to protecting your business from interlopers than outline above, but by implementing these measures, you’ll be on the road to the south of France in no time …
