The answer to stop crime, losses and keep everyone safe

Places of business, commerce, logistics and manufacturing have myriad security and safety needs that present a wide range of challenges. In all cases, negative consequences are best avoided or at least minimized through the deployment of proven preventative measures and practices.

For example, securing a large, thriving shopping center can be a daunting undertaking for property managers across the country. The combination of today’s costly property developments, expensive merchandise and large crowds of shoppers has exposed centers to a broad range of potential security vulnerabilities affecting billions of dollars. Often seen as easy targets, keeping these retail shops, surrounding structures and grounds safe is becoming increasingly challenging as new threats to the public continue to grow.

Common issues shopping centers and other retail environments face include: loitering; trespassing; shoplifting & theft; fraudulent accidents; property damage; homelessness; vandalism; active shooters; terrorism attempts; illegal dumping; graffiti; and large crowd assembly. Many of these are applicable to other commercial facilities and properties as well.

Where it comes to distribution centers and warehouses, due to the countless amounts of valuable merchandise they hold these properties are frequently targeted by thieves. These criminals are also getting smarter and using new technologies to make their attacks more effective. Furthermore, threats can also come from inside a company, as employees can be tempted to steal from the vast amount of inventory stored therein. Internal theft could be done by regular employees, visitors, contractors or even truck drivers. In fact, collusion between employees has been a devastating source of loss to distribution centers and warehouses around the country for many years.

Unfortunately, the traditional means of securing these venues just doesn’t work. Security guards are not only expensive but are inherently limited in their coverage and effectiveness. And while access control systems can control parking and building access, such systems are easily thwarted by tailgating. Even video surveillance cameras are no longer effective these days with criminals realizing they are purely reactive solutions.
