As the coronavirus pandemic is sweeping the globe, people everywhere are doing what they can to slow the spread of COVID-19. To aid containment efforts, businesses around the country are closing their doors temporarily. Unfortunately, this can give thieves and criminals a golden opportunity to target your business. Facility protection remains a crucial concern for business owners, and working with the team at CES Security can help you keep your property protected.
Thieves and Vandals Target Empty Properties
Many criminals choose their targets based on what will grant them the biggest payoff with the least amount of risk. Stealing from facilities that are unattended and will remain closed for the foreseeable future seems like a worthy proposition to many would-be thieves, who would otherwise have to contend with your employees and visitors. Closed businesses are also high-risk targets because many criminals assume (perhaps rightfully so) that a great deal of valuable merchandise and equipment will be locked on site. Hiring security guards can help you protect your assets, even while you are not on the property.
Desperation Can Lead to Theft and Looting
As the pandemic progresses in the United States, many people will likely become more desperate for food, money, and supplies. While additional unemployment benefits have been put in place by many state governments, people will still suffer a great deal of economic hardship. During these frightening times, people who would not ordinarily resort to criminal behavior may turn to theft and looting due to financial stresses. By increasing your facility protection measures, you can make your property a less attractive target and ensure that any crimes are detected, addressed, and reported appropriately.
Rest Assured That Your Property is Safe With Adequate Facility Protection
If you and your employees are quarantining at home, you may be reluctant to stop by your store, warehouse, or office to check on things. Since unattended facilities make excellent targets for criminals, you are likely concerned with your facility’s safety during these closures caused by COVID-19. With security services from CES Security, you can sleep easy knowing that your facility is being monitored, all without leaving your home.
