Yesterday’s rioting, looting and violence in downtown Vancouver was an example of why business owners need to protect themselves and their businesses at all times. While the acts yesterday were shocking due to their large scale, crime and violence are unfortunately part of our society on a daily basis.
If you have a business you not only need to protect your facility with window bars, gates and commercial alarm systems, but you also need to ensure that you are prepared to record any acts of violence that unfortunately do occur.
Theft, violence and riots do not just take place in Vancouver after hockey games. As we saw during the 2010 G20 in Toronto, violence can quickly sweep a city during any large gathering.
Video surveillance cameras and security cameras catch criminals in the act. Not only will they record every action that takes place, but they can also be used by police to identify and prosecute criminals who damage, vandalize or steal from your business.
Installing a video surveillance system and equipping your business with security cameras is a powerful way to protect your business and identify those who have done your company harm.
As witnessed yesterday during the Vancouver riot, violence and vandalism can start almost anywhere and escalate very quickly. These criminal acts can erupt without warning and there is no way to predict or determine when and where they will occur. This is why you need to be vigilant in protecting your property.
The only way to identify criminals without fail is to capture them on video. Video surveillance footage can be used to show the police, your insurance company and any other authorities who broke your windows, who damaged your store and who robbed you of your property. This footage can also be used to document losses and verify what was taken from your business.
Security camera footage is a powerful tool in court as well. The evidence recorded by the video surveillance system can not only identify criminals, but it can be used to match an individual or a group to a specific crime that took place at a specific date and time. There is no more powerful tool in the apprehension and prosecution of criminals.
