How Security Camera Surveillance Can Grow Your Business
As a business owner, security should be one of your top priorities. You work hard to keep your business running and any unexpected setbacks, such as break-ins or theft, can put your business in jeopardy. All business owners, whether victims of theft or not, should understand the importance of taking precautions against these types of crime.
There is no doubt that security camera surveillance footage can be helpful in identifying a bad guy. Exterior cameras have been proven to help deter breaking-and-entering after hours. It’s a great way to keep an eye on the business when you’re done for the day.
Due to the dangerous nature of larceny, it’s not surprising that the public opinion on security cameras is positive. A2013 survey of New Yorkers, found that the demand for more security camera surveillance is nearly unanimous across income, ethnic and political lines. Around 85 percent of poll participants said there should be more public monitoring.
Prevent Employee Theft
A 2014 University of Cincinnati Survey found that 64 percent of businesses experience employee theft, however only 16 percent of those businesses report the crime to the police. By using strategically-placed cameras to monitor employee activity, you can prevent unethical behavior by simply taking away the opportunity. Security camera surveillance can even help the bottom line.
A university funded study of 392 restaurants in 30 states found that when security camera surveillance was used, theft declined by an average of $108 per week. That’s no small change over the long run!
The most common items stolen by employees include money, supplies and merchandise. For a small investment in security camera surveillance equipment, this hole in your profitability can be plugged.
Security camera surveillance is now considered crucial in crime prevention and detection. Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is used in business and commercial applications for staff safety, anti-theft, and access surveillance.
