Retail Security Importance

Retail Security is important for two reasons.  First it provides a safe shopping environment for your clients.  Secondly, it helps to deter and reduce in store theft.

A Safe Environment for Clients, Outdoors

This is probably the number one reason that retailers contact us for security services in Houston.  They want to make sure that their clients are safe both indoors and outdoors.  Retail security begins in the parking lot with mobile patrols.  Security officers patrol the parking area looking for anything that might seem out of place.  They keep an eye on people as they enter and exit the store.  They watch over vehicles that are parked at the business.  Often just the mere presence of a patrol officer on site is enough to deter would-be criminals.  They opt to move along to another location with out security presence.

A Safe Environment for Clients, Indoors

Not only is it important to secure the outside of your store, but inside as well.  A security officer on foot inside the store is a great way to make your customers feel secure.  Take for example a jewelry store in the Galleria.  How would you like to be showing one of your best clients an array of expensive jewelry when walks thru the door a group of people, that just looks out of place.  Wouldn’t that situation feel much more secure with a security officer at the door?  Couldn’t a security officer at the door prevent such an event from even occurring in the first place?  Possibly it would.  Several jewelry merchants at the Galleria have fallen victim to smash and grab thieves in the past year or so.  Was there security on site?  I bet not.

A Reduction in Theft

The number one result in having security on site?  Reduction in theft.  Plain and simple.  A security prescience in your store will reduce theft.  A good security service will work in conjunction with your asset protection associates to help develop a customized loss prevention program.  They will help you identify how losses are occurring, make suggestions to help you minimize future losses, and will deter and detect suspects.

Free Retail Security Consultation

If you are considering the importance of having security onsite at your business, please give us a call to learn more, please call Jeffery Singletary now for a no-obligation security consultation 281-664-1297. You can call Jeffery anytime, 24-hours a day. Or, if you prefer, fill out our contact form and we’ll call you.

 

 

How Do You Protect Yourself From Copper Thieves?

copper-theives

Thieves stole nearly 10,000 feet of copper wire from two parks in La Marque a few weeks ago, prior to that it was the Brake Check in Houston, prior to that it was Caliber Collision on the North Side.  Seems like every day you are hearing more stories about copper thieves getting away with lots of cooper which is costing local businesses big bucks! As reported by the Galveston Daily News, nearly 9,000 feet of copper wire was taken from Highland Bayou Park, said La Marque Mayor Bobby Hocking. It could cost as much as $60,000 to replace, he said.  Another 300 feet to 600 feet of wire was stolen from Mahan Park, said La Marque Detective Shelby Samuelson. “Who ever did it, they knew what they were doing,” Hocking said. The burglars cut the wire that connected to a high-voltage box and then disassembled 14 meter boxes and cut the wires there as well, Samuelson said. They then likely used a vehicle to pull the copper wiring from the ground, he said. It’s an old electrician’s trick, he said. “You can’t pull it by hand,” Samuelson said. “You need something with torque.”The thieves also took the copper wiring from a lift station at the park, Hocking said. He said the city has already replaced and fixed that. Insurance will cover some of the $60,000 to replace the writing, but the city could still end up paying around $25,000 to $30,000, he said.Replacing the stolen wire will have to be added to the work, he said. 

All this makes you wonder what you can do to prevent becoming a victim of copper thieves. 

Here are a few ideas to keep from becoming a victim yourself:

  1. Have the property assessed by a licensed electrical contractor.  They can often make service entrance connections harder to penetrate by securing the wires in metal conduit.
  2. Install security cameras.  This makes thieves take a second look before they act!
  3. Light up all outdoor areas.  Dusk to dawn lighting works great for this.
  4. Hire a security company and post guards on the property.  When your talking about thousands of dollars in wire being stolen, guards can provide a cost effective short term solution.
  5. Hire a patrol service to make random patrols.  Some visible security is better than nothing.
  6. Make sure job sites are secured in the evenings; lock doors, gates, and fences.
  7. Never leave copper wires exposed the temptation is just too much!

If you have been a victim of Copper Theft in the Houston area please call Centron Security for a security consultation. You can reach him at 281-664-1297. You can call Jeffery anytime, 24-hours a day.
