21 Nov. 2018. When you run a small business, chances are that you do not have the time or finances to deal with major damage caused by criminals and vandals. The good news is that there are steps that you can implement into your business that will help to protect your commercial property and reduce its chances of being damaged through criminal activity. Here are just a few to consider.

Install CCTV

As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure. It’s generally better to take steps to prevent or discourage people from carrying out criminal behavior than to clean up the mess afterwards. CCTV can help you to achieve this. Alerting would-be criminals to the fact that they are being watched and recorded at all times when they are inside and around your commercial property is usually enough to send them on their way without causing damage.

If someone does go ahead and cause damage or commit crime regardless of the cameras presence, you are then likely to capture an image of their face, which can then be used to identify and reprimand them. CCTV footage usually stands up very well in court. While CCTV cameras may well be expensive, but they are more than worth the investment.

Invest in window film

Windows are the weakest part of any building. If someone wants to break into your business, chances are that they will attempt to take a window out rather than trying to break down a door or wall, which would require a whole lot more force. However, you can’t just get rid of your commercial property’s windows. Instead, you should invest in Safety Window Film. This holds glass together in the event of an attempted break in. Rather than the glass falling through, it may shatter, but it will hold its form, preventing criminals from entering your commercial property.

Take out insurance

You should also consider taking out insurance policies that protect you financially should your commercial property experience damage. Anything broken could be repaired and anything stolen or damaged beyond repair could be replaced. Sure, this will cost you a sum of money on a monthly or annual basis, but the policy will prove worth every penny when it comes to the peace of mind that it provides you with.

As you can see, there are a variety of different methods that you can use to deter criminal activity and minimize the damage caused by criminal activity that is carried out in or around your commercial property. These are just a few different ideas that you could try out to get the ball rolling in the right direction.
