Some business owners engage a security company to include their premises in a nightly security check, perhaps visiting 2-3 times during the evening and night, while others prefer to have their venue manned from the time the business closes for the day until the first employees arrive in the morning. Larger companies engage manned security 24/7, which is supplied in three 8-hour shifts by an established company that directly employs security personnel.

Inventory Theft

Some factories and warehouses have to screen employees when they leave the facility, to ensure no internal theft is occurring. People do steal stuff if they get the chance and should the manager discover a discrepancy with the inventory, he or she might decide to ask security to carry out spot checks as employees are leaving after work. Video surveillance is another effective way to keep an eye on employees and once installed, they are your eyes 24/7.

External Threats

Of course, you should have CCTV cameras around the perimeter, although a large facility would require more security than just video surveillance. Today’s thieves are very competent and spend a lot of time casing commercial premises and in many cases, the only way to really deter them is to have manned security patrol the venue.
