Don't Let Crimes of Opportunity Flourish During Covid-19

Posted by David Skuy on

I read an article earlier this week that confirmed one of my fears surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. In it, a source from the Vancouver Police Department confirmed they were now seeing an average of four commercial break-ins a day. Normally this figure is one or less. As society grapples with the public health and financial challenges posted by COVID-19, criminals are seizing their opportunity to get to work, preying on businesses left shuttered by employees at home practicing physical distancing.

As we often like to tell our clients, crime flourishes where opportunity allows it to. The Secured Property Group is here to help prevent that opportunity from arising. If your business, or property, is currently undermanned due to COVID-19, we have a number of services that can help to keep you protected:

Security Guard Services

As business owners ourselves, we understand the demand for short-term security solutions is high right now. We have ramped up our staffing levels to provide support for our clients when and where it is needed. We can provide a cost-effective and comprehensive security solution that covers terms as short as a few days, and up. Our guards can assist operations like retail stores, public sector buildings and even corporate facilities that are currently empty or understaffed.

Mobile Patrol and Alarm Response

Depending on your individual needs and budget, our Mobile Patrol teams can be employed to perform randomized patrols along pre-determined interior and exterior routes. This service can also be tailored to respond solely to alarms or on-site incidents. This service is perfect for the following types of properties:

  • Property Managers
  • Construction Sites
  • Office Buildings
  • Parking Lots
  • Warehouses
  • Government Offices

Parking Enforcement

With demand lower at this time, many parking lots are providing the perfect setting for property crime. Our team can work with you to build tailored parking enforcement programs that suit the needs of the location and the current situation. Each of our Parking Enforcement team members receive basic security training that enables them to effectively deter theft and crime while enforcing lot rules and regulations. No matter the size of the lot, our team is equally adept at patrolling large scale parking garages, shopping malls or smaller residential buildings.
