The cost of living crisis is making everyone reconsider their spending and reallocate their budgets. We understand that it’s an incredibly difficult time. We also understand that investing in security is a case of assessing business risk. Do you risk spending money on security and reallocating budget from other departments to keep everyone safe, or do you risk the potential of a costly break-in, including damage, vandalism and theft should you relax your security measures in an attempt cut costs.

Luckily, you don’t need to make a decision of ‘either or’. We can work with you to find a compromise that meets you budget whilst keeping your business and it’s assets safe.

Discuss your requirements with Carter Consultancy

The first step would be to conduct thorough risk assessment of your business, receiving expert security advice that you know you can trust. All you need to do is make an appointment with Carter Consultancy. Nick Carter has over 30 years of experience within the security sector, and he can advise you on which areas of your business need the most consideration when it comes to anything security related. He can discuss your options and create a plan that works for you within your budget. Whilst the cost of a thorough risk assessment might be an initial expense, it could save you tens of thousands of pounds by implementing a security plan that really works.

Consider CCTV monitoring and Alarm Response

One of the simplest forms of security is that of CCTV and CCTV monitoring. Though it has its drawbacks, it can be a great deterrent to crime, and should you have trusted SIA licensed security officers monitoring them, you’d have a good chance at spotting anything suspicious and acting fast to resolve it. Partner this with an alarm response service and you’d be investing in a solid, reactive, security strategy.

Don’t rule out manned guarding and mobile patrols

Investing in security is a brilliant way at deterring crime. Not only can it save hundreds of thousands in theft, damage and vandalism but it can also lower your insurance premiums. Proactive security is arguably the best way to do this, and by proactive security measures we mean Manned Guarding and Mobile Patrols. These security services involve trained SIA licensed security officers on site throughout the day and night. Though this is one of the more expensive options, it could save you so much time, money and stress should your business be the victim of crime through a lack of quality security measures in place.
