Did you know that crime DOUBLES in December?

Despite the festive merriment, criminals take advantage of busier shopping experiences, the longer, darker, colder nights, and warehouses that might be full to the brim of additional stock but with careless security measures make them extra vulnerable. Whilst homeowners are well aware that opportunistic thieves are more operational during December, looking for unwrapped gifts to take for their own, the same is true for businesses, meaning security must take precedence.

Security officers for the shop floor

Whether your store is still practicing social distancing or not, your shop floor will be busier than normal over the coming weeks. With more and more shoppers choosing the ‘shop local’ and support the high street, Christmas brings a brilliant opportunity to seduce customers into becoming lifelong allies to your brand. This increase in foot traffic makes it even more important to invest in a security presence that you trust to reduce the risk of shoplifting and make for a much more pleasant experience.

Protect your stock rooms and warehouses

Increased online shopping habits mean warehouses and stock rooms will be well supplied in the lead up to Christmas to accommodate consumers who might still be cautious to venture out, or just enjoy the convenience of online shopping. If you haven’t invested in suitable security solutions, you’re inviting criminals to not just your physical stock, but the joy of Christmas too! Depending on your location, the size of your business and the value of the stock that you hold will depend on the level of security warranted. It might be you already have CCTV or it might that mobile patrols and manned guarding make the most sense.

Our security services are there to be utilised, but we can start by conducting a thorough risk assessment to ensure the security you need is matched to your business and your budget.
