Ensure You Have the Right Security
Implementing video surveillance system and a security officer for your business may feel like you ready for anything. They are powerful tools to combat crime, but to get the maximum benefits out of each one of them, you should understand their individual roles.
Security cameras and video surveillance deter criminals and are used to solve crimes. But to stop criminals in their tracks or diffuse a volatile situation a security guard is better equipped.
Communication is Key to a Successful Framework
An important facet of any security plan is communication, understanding the flow and how everyone works together to create the most effective security plan. For instance, how to troubleshoot the video surveillance system, the authority of the security guard, reporting a security issue, an ongoing problem with trespassers and criminal activity.
Include your Employees and Residence in the Security Plan
Your security plan should be transparent to your employees and residence. Encourage them to report suspicious behavior and any criminal activity. Showing you are actively participating in the security plan, invested in protecting your business and the environment, allows them to feel safe and deters them from committing crimes themselves.
