Fortunately, we’ve got ways that can make your building less appealing. The best way is to make sure your building is not targeted is to not leave anything valuable behind. Ensure that all office equipment, merchandise, and important data is not in plain sight from the building’s windows.
Plan With Neighboring Businesses
A good way to work together with your neighboring businesses is to make each other aware of your holiday hours. Agree to keep an eye on each other’s locations during down-times to prevent any potential break-ins or robberies. If you aren’t able to do any of this, it’s important to have someone stopping by to assure that nothing looks suspicious.
