What if you went to your place of business tomorrow morning to find the front door shattered and merchandise and money missing?
What if you got a late night phone call from an employee saying that were robbed in the parking lot before they could make the late night bank deposit?
What if these incidences could have been prevented?
There are over 300,000 robberies nationwide every year. Is your business protected?
There are several benefits that come with security monitoring services. Check out these 5 reasons to invest in security monitoring to protect your business.
1) Save Money
What business owner doesn’t like saving money? Investing in a security system can save your business money.
Commercial insurance companies like knowing that your business is protected so they will often offer premium discounts. Be sure to contact your insurance company with any questions.
2) Protection Against Employee Theft
If your employees know that you have surveillance within your company, it may deter those dishonest employees from taking advantage of you. Don’t think your business is at risk?
In-house crime costs US businesses $50 billion annually! Yes, BILLION. Regardless of how much you trust your employees, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
3) Discourage Criminals
If potential criminals see that your business has security monitoring, it could discourage them from breaking in. You are less likely to be robbed if your business has visible cameras.
If alarms are set off, it could scare the culprit enough to make them leave before doing any damage or taking any property.
4) Help Police Catch the Bad Guy
Sometimes criminals will still steal from you. Having a security system in place can help police catch the intruder.
If you are robbed, having video footage can help authorities identify the intruder and hopefully catch them quicker and recover any stolen property.
Security systems alert the security company immediately if someone breaks in. This can allow the criminal to be caught in the act or before they get too far.
If a crime takes place that is not a break in, security cameras can help solve it. If someone steals an employees purse or hits a car in the parking lot, video surveillance can be very useful.
5) Peace of Mind
Knowing that your business is protected can provide you with peace of mind. Employees and customers also feel better knowing that your business has the proper security in place.
Some of your employees may work late hours or may be alone on the grounds. Security monitoring of the parking lot can help protect vehicles from theft, vandalism, and car accidents. Monitoring, both inside and outside of your establishment, makes everyone feel safer.
The right monitoring system isn’t just for protection from theft. You can also protect your employees from other dangers such as sexual harassment and violent encounters.
