Taking just a few steps can help make a big difference in keeping your business safe from burglary. Here are a few tips:

 

  • A well-maintained exterior free of rubbish and graffiti will reduce the likelihood of your business being targeted by criminals.
  • Identify areas that may be vulnerable to forced entry and have them made more secure.
  • Make sure any service doors are locked and secure when not in use.
  • Make sure you have a monitored alarm and that it’s fully operational. For advice and approved suppliers of alarms and CCTV, visit the National Security Inspectorate and the Security Systems Alarms Inspection Board.
  • If not already in use, install CCTV.
  • Make sure that wheelie bins are stored away as these can be climbed on to gain access to the building, especially via the first floor.
  • Make sure there is sufficient lighting around the premises, especially loading areas.
  • Prune any overgrown bushes or nearby trees, as they can provide cover for anyone trying to hide from view.
  • Doors and windows are particularly vulnerable – use security-rated products to make them more burglar-resistant. For more details visit Secure by Design.
  • External shutters, although effective, may require planning approval. Use attack-resistant laminated glass in sturdy frames where possible. Alternatively, film can be applied to glass to make it more resilient.
  • Anti-ram raider bollards mounted externally can be used to protect frontages but may require planning approval.
  • Try not to keep cash on the premises and always use a bolted-down safe with a time lock and anti-tamper sensors that trigger an alarm.
  • Make sure stockrooms are locked and, where possible, keep stock out of sight.
  • Smoke-generating devices that activate on unauthorised entry create a smokescreen and foil burglary. They're designed not to damage stock.
  •  

    In an emergency, when there is a crime in progress or a life at risk, always call 999.To report a crime or incident, provide information or for advice, call 101 or visit www.northants.police.uk
