Security Design / CPTED

Don't support crime. Prevent it,

Make your premises less attractive to thieves

Simple physical improvements can reduce the vulnerability of your business 

Minimise access points and elimiate escape routes

Keep outside environments clear of overgrown foliage and rubbish

Make sure access points to your business are manned and monitored

Well-lit and cared for premises discourage activity

Use active security measures such as alarms and CCTV

Remove graffiti immediately after it appears. Report it to 301 0101, 24/7.

Clear lines of sight: see and be seen - Keep windows clear of posters etc.

Don't advertise your business to burglars!

Let's make it as hard as possible for burglars to gain entry.
Doors - choose solid construction, preferably with no windows & locked
Locks - choose good quality locks to make it harder to gain entry
Windows - close and lock all windows before you leave your premises
Roof - limit access by securing ladders, bins, crates etc
Lighting - leave lights on when you're not there
Entrances/driveways - lock your gate and premises
Alarm - alarm all points of entry and install signs to show you have an operating alarm
Serial numbers - keep a complete list of business equipment and record all serial numbers
Keys and alarm codes - limit access to keys, the safe, computerised records and alarm codes
Safes - do not keep large amounts of money outside business hours; safes should be secured to the floor and not visible from the outside
