Shopping centers have become major marketing and merchandising centers, drawing in millions of people daily. 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. Crime — burglary, robbery, vandalism, shoplifting, employee theft, and fraud — costs businesses billions of dollars each year. Crime can be particularly devastating to small businesses, who lose both customers and employees when crime and fear claim a neighborhood. Elite security consultants use real-time video streams with audio speakers strategically positioned on-site to give first responders the right kind of support to catch criminals.
