While nothing is foolproof, there are many ways you can decrease the possibility of theft in your business:
*Locks-have locks on all doors, and use them!
*Key Control-give out as few keys as possible. Also, have a log of who has which keys and know when they are authorized to use them. Electronic keys can help you know who opens which locks and when.
*Lighting-adequate lighting can also help prevent burglary. Timing devices that turn lights on and off may be helpful during extended absences.
*Alarms-another deterrant to burglary is an alarm system. Many are monitored off-site 24 hours a day and will immediately notify the Police or Fire Department.
