There has most certainly been a shift in the weather over the last week, and we’re starting to see blossom appearing on trees, daffodils flowering and lighter evenings too. After the last month or so of what felt like continual storms, the change in the weather has been welcome, and for many, it prompts a bit of a spring clean! This often extends past getting out your rubber gloves, and for business owners, in particular, the fresh weather can trigger taking a fresh look at their company. We’re also fast approaching the end of the financial year, so now is a brilliant time to reassess your budget and start thinking about investing in a security presence.
The first step is to consider how your business has changed over the last year.
- Has your business grown or shrunk?
- Have you moved to a new location?
- Has your surrounding area changed at all? (For example, have businesses moved out and left buildings close by empty? Or has a housing development and construction site started up close by?)
- Have your neighbours reported any crime in the area?
- Has there been any harsh weather that could have caused damage to your perimeter fencing?
All of these factors should be considered, and a little bit of local research should help answer anything you’re unsure of. If you do have any questions, please reach out to us, and we’d be happy to offer our expertise.
What type of security does my business need?
Once you’ve identified the risks, the next step is to consider which type of security service would work best for your needs and your budget.
- CCTV and Thermal Imagery Cameras
The first security measure businesses tend to take is that of CCTV and thermal imagery technology. Whilst this is great for recording potential incidents, it’s also often a target for vandalism, and could be costly to repair.
- Manned Guarding and Mobile Patrols
Having SIA licensed, fully trained and uniformed security guards on site are the best deterrent to crime. They are also able to act quickly and calmly and alert the local authorities should an incident occur during their shift.
- Key holding and Alarm Response
The final service we’d recommend would be our key holding and alarm response service. This is where security guards are deployed to your business should the security alarm be triggered – particularly useful during the dead of night. This keeps you safe from harm and allows everything to be handled by professionals.
