Posted by Tom on January 31st, 2020
Nothing quite derails a community like violence and crime. Living and working independently means being able to explore within your community and utilize its resources safely and with confidence. In this blog, we will be touching on San Diego’s past criminal history, our current criminal trends, tips you can implement to enhance your community’s safety, and how outsourcing a security team can benefit your business and overall safety.
8 Tips to Keep Your Community Safe
Both your office and residential community will benefit from these tips:
Protect Your Community
It is best to have an on-site protection team dedicated to the safety of the community and residents of the building. A 2017 study published in the Public Library of Science tested the effects of private security agents and crime in public spaces in Southwest England. The study found that victim-reported crimes reduced by 16% and guard-reported incidents increased by 49% when patrol officers were present at the scenes. The overall presence of the security teams provided peace-of-mind and a feeling of safety to the building employees, customers, and visitors.
On the other hand, the high price and intense responsibility makes hiring a resident security staff an unreasonable goal for many communities. By outsourcing a security team you and the members of your community will be saving money and minimizing risk, all while protecting yourselves from criminal activity. Besides saving money and minimizing risk, a security team serves as an asset to your business by increasing flexibility and alleviating administration burdens. When you choose to outsource for your business’ needs, your security is there to protect and easily adapt to the changing requirements of your business. Furthermore, save the burden by not having to worry about interviewing, scheduling, or training your desired security team – let the security provider take the time and stress out of your hands.
The best way to ensure residents and employees feel safe in their community and work environment is to foster a sense of security. We’ve made tremendous progress over the past couple years in terms of crime rates, but it is every person’s job to ensure we maintain, if not improve, this current level of community safety. Build a sense of security, prevent future criminal activity, and monitor your community by incorporating our shared tips to your daily routine and by hiring a security team to protect you, your business, and the community as a whole!
