According to a Griffith University report retailers lose thousands, if not tens of thousands, of dollars per year in crime-related loss. In fact, Co-author and Griffith Criminology Institute Professor Michael Townsley says;
“We estimate crime costs Australian and New Zealand retail economies about $4.3 billion per year, and that’s a 28 per cent increase over four years from when the last similar study was conducted. “Customer theft was the largest category of retail crime making up 53 per cent of losses followed by employee theft which made up 24 percent of losses.’’
If you own a commercial business, it is crucial that you protect your business, goods, employees and customers. Here are some other reasons why you should install a security system:
Protection against theft and vandalism
A security system can help to deter theft and vandalism by providing deterrent and alerting authorities in the event of an attempted break-in.
A security system can help to keep employees safe by providing an alarm in case of emergencies, such as fire or medical issues, and by providing surveillance of the premises.
A security system can help to ensure the safety of customers by monitoring the premises and alerting authorities in the event of a safety concern or emergency.
A security system can help to protect a business from liability by providing evidence in the event of an incident or dispute.
Many modern security systems allow for remote monitoring, which can provide business owners with the ability to monitor their premises from anywhere, at any time.
