Protect your business with Geelong mobile patrolsMarch 31, 2017
With burglary, break and enter and property damage offences on the rise across Greater Geelong, it’s worth considering the security benefits that Geelong mobile patrols can bring to your business.
The Crime Statistics Agency’s latest figures show a 10.2 per cent increase in crime across the state in the 12 months to December 2016. While the local government area of Greater Geelong followed the state average, recording a 10.3 per cent jump in overall crime, some crime categories including burglary/break and enter showed substantial increases from 2015.
And that’s alarming news for business owners as they try to protect their place of work from vandals and burglars. While quality alarm systems play an important security role, Geelong mobile patrols are a great way to increase the protection level of your business premises.
At Geelong Monitoring Services, our licensed and well-trained mobile guards can carry out regular patrols of your property, carefully checking that external windows, doors and gates are locked, fence lines are secure and on-site vehicles and staff working late are safe. Driving branded cars, they’re a strong and visible message to would-be offenders to stay away.
Hiring mobile patrols is a positive and effective way to lower the risk of your business adding to the next round of crime statistics.
The CSA’s crime figures for Greater Geelong for the year ending December 2016 include:
- Total offences climbed 10.3 per cent from the previous year;
- Property and deception offences stood at 15,337 for the year, up nine per cent from 2015;
- There were 3030 burglary/break and enter offences for the year, a 21.5 per cent jump from 2015;
- And theft offences climbed by 14.2 per cent.
When you work hard to build your business into a successful organisation, you don’t want to see it targeted by offenders. Dealing with the aftermath of crime, whether it’s a burglary, a vandal attack or even arson, can be a distressing, disrupting and expensive experience that takes a toll on business owners, their staff and their customers.
