What Would It Take to Protect My Vancouver Business?October 26th, 2019 | by admin admin | in Security Advice | 0
What it would take to protect your business in Vancouver is a complicated question with no one-size-fits-all answer. In order to determine what your security needs are, it’s important to understand what type of business it is.
These are the questions to look at:
What needs protecting? People? Physical assets? Equipment? Merchandise?
Where is the office located? Is it a standalone building with a yard? Is it in a high- rise where there may already be some security in place?
What type of criminal activity are you most likely to encounter? Employees stealing? Break-ins? Unauthorized access?
You may need video cameras and some kind of remote monitoring. This is a great deterrent for crime because security people are watching the feed in real time.
You may need better control of access into your place of business. You may need some kind of alarm system for the perimeter.
Security companies (like us) do a careful assessment of each client before recommending any kind of system or systems. Every business is unique, so every business needs their own unique security solution.
Vancouver’s crime rate increased slightly, about 2%, in 2018, but the rate is lower than the national average and lower than the crime rate in neighbouring Alberta. Furthermore, the increase in crime rate could be due to more people reporting crimes rather than actually more crimes being committed. So, the increase may not be statistically significant.
