Christmas Security – Make it a priority.  Don’t let thieves steal your Christmas.

Can you believe it’s only 77 days till Christmas … Where has this year gone?

The clocks go back at the end of this month and the dark nights and cold weather are coming.  Hello Autumn!

As a long established security firm we always find this is our busiest time of the year.  Sadly rises in theft go hand in hand with Christmas time.  The West Midlands was reported to have the second highest burglary rate in the country over the 2017 festive period.  We tend to have a big increase in alarm call’s this year to premises & residential properties we do key holding for due to people attempting robberies to raise extra cash around Christmas time.

We also find a rise in people requesting static guarding over Christmas, whether this is to provide that extra peace of mind ensuring your business is safer now it’s darker nights or to firms who have people working through the night getting ready for the Christmas period.

There has also been an increase in people in residential areas clubbing together to organise private mobile security. This has been to help protect their streets & homes over the festive period, due the huge drop in the presence of police officers.

December is always an extremely busy period with a lot of last minute calls for security.  It’s always best to try and think about this a little earlier on as we find the break ins tend to start happening from around the end of October.  You may be considering mobile security just to warn of people potentially scouting your site. Alternatively you want manned guarding on your business on a short or long term basis. Either way it’s not to early to start making the enquiries and getting something booked in ready.

We provide a free site survey for anyone looking for manned security or key holding & alarm response services.  We are then able to give you an exact price based on the exact needs of your business and get the service set up and ready to start whenever you need it too.

With over 15 years in the business we are highly experienced in protecting businesses and residential homes throughout the region and we know all the tricks people try to play over Christmas to gain access to businesses to attempt break ins.

Have a look at our top tips on keeping your premises safe to ensure you have done all you can to deter any potential thieves.
