                                          ***Small Business Burglary Prevention***
Windows should have secure locks and burglar-resistant glass.  Consider installing metal grates on all your windows except display windows.  Remove all expensive items from window displays at night and make sure you can see easily into your business after closing.  Light the inside and outside of your business, especially around doors, windows, skylights, or other entry points.  Consider installing covers over exterior lights and power sources to deter tampering.  Check the parking lot for good lighting and unobstructed views.  Keep your cash register in plain view from the outside of your business, so it can be monitored by police during the day or at night.  Leave it open and empty after closing.  Make sure your safe is fireproof and securely anchored. Leave it open when it’s empty, use it to lock up valuables when you close.  Remember to change the combination when an employee who has had access to it leaves your business.   Before you invest in an alarm system, check with several companies and decide what level of security fits your needs. Learn how to use your system properly. Check the system daily, and run a test when closing.
Thank you,
