Why Your Current Security System May Not Be Enough to Protect Your Business | Alert Protective Services Inc.

Posted on October 5th, 2011 by Alert Protective

Between shoplifting and employee theft alone, over $33 billion is stolen from retail establishments each year. In fact, inventory loss ranges from about .7 to 2.2 percent of gross sales. If that doesn’t seem like much, consider this example: $2 million in retail sales with an inventory loss of just 1.7 percent means $34,000 in losses per year. And while security systems and alarm systems are a step in the right direction, they may not be enough to protect your business.

There are a number of products and services which can be used alongside your current alarm system to provide maximum protection against shoplifting, theft, break-ins, vandalism, and more. A few examples include:

  • Commercial Surveillance Systems

Installing a video surveillance system offers an additional level of protection for your business. Not only will a surveillance system give you the peace of mind of knowing that you have reliable, state-of-the-art equipment watching over your business, but it will also deter criminal activity in the first place. In the event of theft or robbery, you will have the hard evidence needed to secure a prosecution.

  • Commercial Alarm Monitoring

Having an alarm system installed is an excellent start when it comes to protecting to business, but flashing lights and sirens are of little use when no one is around to respond. Having your alarm systems monitored is a must for any business that is vacant for any part of the day. Monitoring services may be available for your existing alarm system.
