Perimeter Security

Statistics (and common sense) show that doors and windows are the most frequent points of attack in a burglary. Make sure all doors and windows have the proper structural integrity and that they are closed and locked properly. More often than not, thefts or other incidents occur simply because a door or window is left unlocked. Check to see that large objects such as rocks, planters, ashtrays, tools, etc. are not located by entry points. These items could be picked up and used to break open a door or window. Secure items inside such as ladders and hand tools that could be used to gain access to windows or the roof. If your location has a security fence, make sure that vehicles aren’t parked directly next to it (including inside the fence) providing criminals with cover to cut the fence or an easy platform to use in climbing over the fence.
