Store stock theft is a major risk for every business, and a business or store based crime occurs about every 5 seconds in the America today. Some of the best tactics for small business security are:

Key Protection

Only give out keys to your business to employees that you trust, and even when you do, always keep track of it. Make sure that you get the key back if these employees are terminated, quit, or leave their job. If you cannot get one of the keys back, make sure to rekey or change all of your locks. Have an emergency locksmith programmed into your phone’s contacts to contact as soon as possible if you have reason to suspect your keys have fallen into untrustworthy hands.

CCTV Cameras

If you have a system of security cameras in place it makes it much less likely that a robbery or theft from your business will occur. Even if the cameras don’t work as a deterrent to a crime being attempted in the first place, they will capture the crime in progress,  making it much easier to find and catch the culprit. Having cameras installed also helps potential insurance claims if a theft does occur. Cameras also allow you to keep a close watch on your employees, sometimes, even from a distance.

Alarm System

Every business needs a good alarm system. By using an alarm system in conjunction with a system of security cameras, you can prevent crimes from occuring at your business in the first place, as well as increasing the chances criminals attempting to burglarize your business will get caught. If there’s a robbery in progress, an alarm can help employees who might be in danger. In order to protect the safety of your employees as well as the security of your business, make sure to have a high quality alarm system installed throughout the property.
