Halloween Business Security – It’s all fun and games until the business gets burgled!

Although Halloween is all fun and games for trick or treaters, children, families, and sweet shops, it’s not always fun for businesses. Make sure your Halloween business security is bona fide and ready this autumn season!

During the winter months and particularly around Halloween and Bonfire night, burglaries and theft or damage-related criminal activity increase by up to a shocking 160%.

Why’s this?

Opportunists taking advantage of people being out on the streets and wearing costumes to conceal faces. Criminals may use their Halloween costumes as a disguise to damage or rob your business!

Factors to consider, particularly for warehouses, construction business or builders merchants is the increased need for wood or bonfire fuel. What this means to you as a business… People pinching your stock or valuables to burn. Therefore, we’ve come up with some tips to help your Halloween business security this spooky season!

Quick tips for not getting tricked:

Outdoor and Indoor lighting

The fewer places thefts can linger in the darkness, the less likely they will take the chance to commit a robbery on your business.

CCTV

Deter criminal activity with a CCTV system, if thieves spot you have a security camera in place, they will think twice before committing the crime.

Intruder Alarm System

If thieves fail to be deterred by your CCTV system and manage to breach the premises, they’ll have a fright when the sounders and alarm draw all the attention to them when gaining unauthorised access to your business property.

Intruder Alarm Monitoring

Don’t just stop at an intruder alarm monitoring system. If your business premises’ intruder alarm system goes off, then who’s around to hear it? Who will take action to prevent theft or damage done to your property if intruders do gain access? Alarm monitoring will make sure the Alarm Receiving Centre is notified to ensure the right action is taken and therefore make sure your business is protected in the event of an intrusion.
