Crime Prevention Advice for Business Owners

Security Fears Heightened as Thousands of Businesses Remain Closed

Thousands of businesses up and down the country remain closed and with no clear indication of when they might re-open criminals are taking advantage of vulnerable premises and finding new ways to conduct criminal activity.

Whilst the media are reporting a decrease in shoplifting, serious assaults, and car crime during the lockdown, what they’re failing to report to the same extent is a nationwide increase in theft from unattended business premises. In contrast to the media Police are reporting a significant increase in break-ins and theft from commercial properties that are closed and sitting empty and they are advising business owners to take necessary precautions to protect their premises and commercial assets.

Since 1995 Magenta Security have been at the forefront of commercial security protection throughout the UK. We provide all our customers with a detailed security risk assessment designed to highlight where a business is vulnerable and what steps should be taken to mitigate the risk of break-in, vandalism and theft.

Every risk assessment that we undertake involves a thorough inspection of business premises and any existing security systems that may be a security risk. As a business owner, during this closed period and adhering to Government guidelines on social distancing, you can carry out your own risk assessment by following these simple steps.
