Preventing Commercial Burglaries
Burglary is a property crime that occurs when the operation is closed for business. Burglar's may enter through any opening such as a door, window, air conditioning duct, skylight, or even create an entry portal through an interior shared wall or an outside wall. Reduce your risk as much as possible. Burglary is a crime of opportunity that can be prevented if proper precautions are taken.

Be prepared - Burglary usually happens to those who are least prepared. Although no security system is 100 percent
effective, there are many things that you can do to reduce
chances of becoming a victim.

Assess your vulnerability - click here for checklist to
see how your security could be improved and/or modified.

  • Reduce insurance premiums.
  • Reduce claims frequency and improve experience modification.
  • Improve training and staff safety consciousness.
  • Improve employee morale.
  • Develop policies and procedures necessary to keep your business running smoothly.
