SASKATOON POLICE ADVISE INSTALLING ALARM AND CAMERA SYSTEMS


Global News, November 29, 2016, David Giles

Saskatoon police advise people to take measures following rash of break and enters

Saskatoon police are asking people to ensure valuables are locked up and property is secure following a number of break and enters on the city’s east side.

Police said there were 12 break-ins at businesses, homes and garages over the weekend.

Overall, police said break and enters city-wide are up slightly, with 1,952 reported since the beginning of the year compared to 1,930 over the same period in 2015.

Police said there are steps people can take to help prevent break-ins.

One of those measures is to install an alarm system and surveillance cameras.

Officials said valuables should be locked away, adequate lighting is in place, doors and windows are locked, and keys and remote garage door openers removed from vehicles.

Police also said serial numbers of valuables should be recorded to help with recovery in the event they are stolen.

Any suspicious activity should be reported to Saskatoon police.

ARE SECURITY CAMERAS THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR BUSINESS?


Gone are the days of grainy black-and-white images on a 15” monitor!  Today’s surveillance cameras give you high-definition images in day, low-light and even night-time conditions.  They are vandal proof and can work in -50o C temperatures.  With the right security camera, installed the right way, you can catch a licence plate number from 75 feet away in a blizzard, follow an intruder across your yard, count how many people enter your store in a given period, even be alerted when unattended baggage appears in a pre-defined space.

However, many business owners are on the fence about whether to add a security camera system, or to upgrade a 15-year-old analog system.  Cost can seem prohibitive, and while they sure are nice toys to play with, are they really adding any value to your security system?  Most businesses already pay for a monitored alarm system; what will a security camera system do that’s worth the extra cost?

First off, I should point out that security cameras are not as expensive as they used to be.  In fact, a beautiful 1080P security camera with infra-red LEDs costs less now than an analog security camera did 5 years ago.  But it is still an investment, and you need to know that your investment is going to pay off. 

Here are some great points to consider, regarding adding video to your building’s security:

1. Internal Theft

A 2015 study showed that 75% of employees have stolen at least once from their employer.  A staggering 43% of shrinkage reported by retail outlets was due to internal theft, which is a higher figure than shoplifting (36%).  Not only that, but many people are installing cameras to catch their employees stealing time from them – showing up late and leaving early for shifts.  Putting security cameras in key areas, and letting your staff know they are there, can go a long way to eliminating this.

2. Safety

Incidents happen in the workplace every day, causing bodily injury, among other things.  Some incidents occur without any witnesses.  Having high-definition footage of an incident can help yourself and the Workers Compensation Board separate a fraudulent claim from a legitimate claim, offering safety for both you and your employees.  It can also answer the age-old question of who backed the truck into the loading dock.

3. Catching Criminals

In 2015, Saskatchewan had over 9,400 break-ins and Alberta had over 27,000 break-ins. In many, many cases it is impossible to determine who the perpetrator was; even if there is a suspicion, the courts need hard evidence in order for you to press charges.  While it is still possible for someone to avoid cameras or to disguise oneself during a break-in, HD video surveillance can provide that hard evidence in a high proportion of cases.  Even if your footage can’t solve your case now, the Police will keep it on file and it may help solve other cases in the future.

4. Deterrent

If your building has security cameras, and the one next door doesn’t, it’s a no-brainer for a criminal.  Most intruders are looking for a crime of opportunity, not a well-planned heist.  More often than not, just the presence of the security cameras themselves will reduce the amount of crime your business has to suffer through.

5. Save Money

Ultimately, the amount of money you can prevent from leaving your bank account due to internal theft, break-ins, and fraudulent claims can be enough to pay for a high-definition security camera system multiple times over.  Many businesses even notice an upsurge in employee productivity as a result of the added video surveillance.

So there are just a few reasons why video surveillance may be the right choice for your business.  I have seen clients save literally hundreds of thousands of dollars because they had the right equipment in the right place.  In most cases, the benefits are measurable almost instantly.  So be sure to take all this into consideration when making plans to increase your business’ security.

MONEY SAVER: Instead of purchasing a camera system or upgrades and tying up your capital, you should consider our new Business Bundles program. One low monthly fee covers it all.
