5 Ways to Reduce Risk by Becoming a Hard Target
Modern businesses are facing threats on multiple fronts, such as an increasing frequency of workplace violence. Protecting your clients and employees from these threats requires active shooter security, video monitoring services, and other defensive measures.
With that in mind, Patriot Shield Security has compiled this list of ways that you can make your facility a hard target. Read on to learn how you can better protect your assets and find out how we can help.
1. Secure Your Perimeter
The first security measure that you should institute is securing your perimeter. If you have a fence or wall, ensure that all gates are locked when not in use. Even the most well-built walls are useless if you leave the gate open. Whether you are in charge of a church, school, or dispensary, task an employee with walking the perimeter periodically throughout the day to ensure your perimeter is secure.
2. Install Security Cameras
Installing security cameras is another great way of making your business a hard target. Cameras serve two purposes. They give you a comprehensive view of your building’s interior and exterior. Having visible security cameras will also deter criminals as they will know that there is a greater chance of being caught.
A quality camera system is only as good as the monitoring service. While you can assign someone to watch the cameras, many businesses opt for third-party monitoring services. Having a professional on the lookout is much more effective.
