How The Security Risk Assessment Enables Proactive Crime Prevention
Crime is unfortunately not a very pleasant subject and is therefore also avoided in general. This is despite the fact that the media relentlessly bombards us with horror stories and tragedies alike. The ever increasing high crime rate in our country is always a point of concern. Often crime and consequently security are not given much thought or serious consideration, as long as things are running smoothly and remain incident free. It is only usually when something happens and you find yourself or your loved ones / colleagues a victim of crime that the real value of security is realized and by then it is simply too late. Steps can be taken towards successful crime prevention.
DEFINITION OF CRIME: IT’S TOO LATE!
WHY WAIT UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE?
Typically our clients (both residential and business) have already spent thousands on security and their systems only to be targeted by a criminal attack in the future. It is only at this point that they realize there is something wrong with their security and it is obviously just not enough. Unfortunately, most human beings only gain wisdom the hard way by suffering a disaster or a traumatic event. Attitudes towards crime and security need to be drastically altered. Why is it necessary to experience huge financial loss – or even worse the loss of life or serious injury – before it is understood how important security is?
