|Securing a commercial property is not an easy or simple task. Property managers, security coordinators, and business owners all know that security in a business complex or shopping center can be varied, complex and difficult to just get right. It’s a critical factor, considering that workplace crime is now costing businesses up to 50 billion dollars a year. There are a number of different variables to consider, various contexts to understand, and a multitude of threats to observe. But how do you know if what you’re doing now is right or wrong? How do you know if your commercial property is as secure as it can be?|
Keeping track of security problems as they occur is key to understanding long-term or season trends for your business. Are certain issues increasing over time or specifically during a given season? Any spikes in security issues at your business may be a sign that it’s time to seek professional help.
If your surroundings are a security risk, your business is one too! Although you may have a good handle on your business security program as it stands, criminals are always two steps ahead of the game. That is why it is essential to stay up to date on the latest solutions to your specific security issues for not only your business but also your neighborhood, in order to respond before your business becomes a criminal statistic.
Solid security programs are key to business safety but if you receiving complaints about security personnel it may be time to seek help with your security.

A good program and a great personnel team will create ease of mind for you and your team so that you can focus on what you do best, running your business.

Reflecton your current security program in operation. Is it a smooth running system where each part works cohesively or do you notice disparate elements struggling to work together? A truly effective security plan has all it’s elements (security personnel, access control, emergency planning teams) all working together preventively. If there are parts of your security program that are struggling to integrate, it may be a sign you need some help.

If you are wondering if you need help, you most likely do.
