Qualities Burglars Look For?

What Do Burglars Look for?

It only needs to happen once. You return to your business and discover that the front door is open, or a window is broken. Someone has broken in and stolen money and valuables and there’s nothing you can do about it now. Having your business burgled can be a traumatic experience, and at Bravis, it is our mission to do everything we can to prevent it from happening. We’ve had 15 years of experience keeping burglars at bay, and here’s what we’ve learned about how they think.

Windows and Front Doors

Most burglaries are opportunistic crimes. Research indicates that most robberies happen without much planning and most criminals gain entry through unsecured windows and front doors! Our first recommendation for better security? Don’t make it easy! Sometimes, making an opportunistic criminal think twice is all you need.

Absence of a Security System

When it comes to protecting your premises, a professionally monitored alarm system is the best way to deter potential burglars. Most criminals look for weak spots in the exterior of a business and know enough to look for security systems. For most opportunistic thieves, the mere presence of a CCTV security system is enough to discourage them from trying anything.

Burglars Break in Through the Windows.

Unfortunately, windows are still the most vulnerable part of most buildings. Most burglaries are smash-and-grab operations where criminals are looking to get in and out as quickly as possible. The windows of your business are the most vulnerable points of entry. Fortunately, innovations in security technology such as glass break detectors can play a vital role in scaring away intruders. High quality glass break detectors with microprocessors and microphones “hear” the sound of glass breaking and trigger an alarm or a remote monitoring system instantly.

Is Your Business Being Watched?

Experienced burglars and criminals will often “case” your business in order to notice patterns that will give them an opportunity to strike. Do not open your door to strangers that make you uncomfortable and do not let anyone in for no good reason. A strong CCTV security system monitored by a professional security firm will help you identify suspicious vehicles and individuals who may be seen often near your place of business.

Are Certain Businesses Easy Targets?

Businesses with known valuables such as electronics, jewellery, pharmacies, are attractive targets for burglars. Cash heavy businesses are particularly at risk as criminals are aware that all they need to do is break in and grab whatever they can. Businesses which are open late also need to be careful since there are fewer people around and this can present an easy opportunity.
