Security Gets Tougher In Tough Times…

Security gets tougher in tough times…

On the 4th July we saw pubs open their doors again and non-essential retail could start trading as of 15th June. Though admits the good news for many members of the public, there has been a vast impact to the retail and hospitality sectors which cannot be calculated as no one knows the true cost of the Coronavirus on the economy.

As we start to relax the lockdown in the UK we still have to keep our guard on retail crime The British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) reported in March last year that retail crime is still on the rise up 12% as the cost of crime and prevention of crime was £1.9 billion. This is predicted to rise again this year in hand with the biggest forecasted recession since the 1930s.

It becomes more of a risk to leave your goods, assets and products unprotected in uncertain times, as people have less disposable income and many people being made redundant. A security presence to act as a deterrent to the people who are looking to commit internal and external crimes should still be on the top of people’s lists, especially as there are many more benefits to hiring a Guard, CCTV or Door Supervisor.

Man Guarding

We have experienced and professional team members, who will proactively prevent crime being committed on your premises, this could be from fly-tipping to trespassers. As these crimes increased during lock-down, people were taking advantage of many places closed and even security being cut.
