Safety has never been more on people’s minds. Social distancing is now a term used daily when at the start of the year it wasn’t even heard of. With the emphasis on staying safe and staying alert, it’s easy to forget that a virus isn’t the only thing to be aware of right now.
Easing lockdown across the country has meant more people leaving their homes, and local police authorities have seen an increase in petty crime. This is why investing in quality security services needs to be a priority.
If your business gearing up to reopen in the coming weeks or months, then it’s likely you’re starting to ‘set up shop’ again, whilst still having a reduced workforce. This can easily leave your business vulnerable, as increased stock can be left waiting until you’re ready to open your doors to the general public. It’s important to remain vigilant and to consider increased security for the foreseeable future.
Another very important factor is the number of people who are going to be hit financially in the coming months. Already, we approximately 6.3 million people on the government furlough scheme, and this sees them mostly on just 80% of their ordinary salaries. This will understandably cause many families across the UK financial difficulty, this is without discussing the very real possibility of many of individuals losing their jobs as a direct result of COVID-19 and the pressure it’s put on the economy.
It’s no surprise that with financial crisis comes further increases in crime rates. Theft and vandalism are likely to increase, and this can have detrimental effects on struggling businesses. This is yet another reason why it’s important to consider a quality security presence at your business. Security is best used as a way to reduce the risk of crime, and not as a reactive service. Whilst we can provide a keyholding service and alarm response team, the most effective service we offer is mobile patrols and manned guarding.
With challenging times ahead for most business owners, now is the time to consider investing in a security service.
For more information on how we can provide a quality security service at your business during these difficult times, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
