If you own or manage a business, the fear of a burglary, a robbery or a major shoplifting loss is probably never far from your mind. Most often these are crimes of opportunity. They happen because the criminal spots an easy chance and takes it. So make it tough on him or her. Here’s how.


Odds are, if you are careless, the burglars will hit your business sooner or later-so practice good security.

Doors and windows

  • Use deadbolt locks on all exterior doors. Those with glass should have double cylinder deadbolts.

  • Make sure you check all doors and windows each day, before closing.

  • Develop a system of key security. Make sure all keys issued are signed for and turned in when an employee leaves the company. You may even want to change locks and combinations.

  • Do not identify with what they’re used for. If necessary, use a coding system.

  • If you have doors with outside hinges, use non-removable hinge pins. Install panel doors lined with metal to resist drilling.

  • Doors and windows on the sides and rear of a building are often inviting to the burglar because they offer concealment. Steel reinforcing bars on doors and gratings or bars on windows offer good security.

  • Every exterior opening offers a potential point of entry. Do not overlook security at places like fire escapes, skylights, roof openings, air ducts, doorway transoms, loading docks, sidewalk and basement openings.

  • Before you leave, check all potential hiding places, like bathrooms, closets and storage areas. The last thing you want to do is to lock a burglar inside.


Surveillance Camera System

  • Install cameras in the front and rear of the building

  • Monitor the inside of your business for theft by employees and thieves.

Using lights

  • Light up all entrances with vandal-proof fixtures. Burglars like a nice dark place in which to work.

  • Keep some lights on inside, and place them near the rear so that an intruder’s silhouette can be seen from the street.

Alarm systems

  • Install a good alarm system and have it checked regularly.

  • Make sure it is wired to go off at all potential points of entry, including doors, windows, roof openings, loading docks and vents.

Your cash

  • Keep as little cash around as possible. Make bank deposits frequently, but, irregularly so as not to establish a discernible pattern.

  • Securely anchor your safe in a highly visible, well-lit location.

  • Empty your cash drawers and leave them open after hours.

  • Keep the premises visible from the street; avoid blocking the interior view with high window displays and/or advertisements on windows.

  • Make sure trees and shrubs around entranceways are trimmed.

  • Don’t leave ladders or tools lying around that a burglar could use to help him break in.

Some additional tips

  • If a burglar does get in, don’t make it easy for him/her to remove items. Bolt racks to the floor, alternate hangers on the rack, and lock small valuables in cabinets.

  • If you discover a break-in, call the police immediately. Don’t enter the premises until police arrive. The thief may still be inside, or you may disturb evidence.
