The aftermath of a workplace break-in

June 06, 2018

Having someone break into your workplace is upsetting and leads to an extensive investigation to find out how it happened. All of this as you try and carry on with business as normal. How do you put you and your employees’ minds at ease?

Break-ins are unexpected, distressing, and often happen at the worst possible time. But there are ways you can overcome a break-in swiftly. Here are three top tips for coping with a break-in.

Install and test your new system

It only takes a second for someone to get into your office. Make sure your cameras are working and report anything out of the ordinary or suspicious to the police, no matter how small you think it is. Take some time inspecting your premises No time to spare? Our professional team will be on hand to recommend any installations that are needed for your office, making it safer and more secure for the future. All you need to do is book your free security audit.

Getting practical after a break-in

It can be hard to know where to start when you arrive in the office after the break-in, not to mention the state of shock you’ll experience. We can instantly protect your premises by boarding up the door as part of our keyholding service, allowing you to secure anything else the thieves may have left.

Our team of vigilant marshalling security guards can also help the police track down your missing equipment and make sure that everyone who enters the office is allowed to be there. And if someone does try and get in again, our guards will be there to stop them.

Preparation is the best form of defence

It’s impossible to know when crimes will be committed and where. Taking a proactive approach will make sure that you don’t become another headline on the news. Pay attention to any warnings from the police about thieves operating in your area and alert your staff.

Proactive and preventive actions can be small, like instructing your staff to lock their windows, through to checking your alarms regularly. You might well be able to do most of this yourself but having a neutral pair of eyes take a look over your systems can give you additional peace of mind.

If you want someone to protect your office and provide a rapid response, our professional team can adapt to your unique security needs, giving you peace of mind where you need it most.
