As retailers try to lure shoppers to their stores during the critical holiday season, which can account for as much as 40 percent of yearly sales, businesses are also trying to send a message that they're safe. Each year, many of our clients beef up security over the holidays. The biggest threats occur in parking lots, where shoppers are at risk of having their cars stolen or purses snatched. Vehicle break-ins also account for a large percentage of crimes that occur during the holiday seasons as shoppers leave packages in plain sight of thieves.
As security officers, we need to be extra vigilant this time of the year. Even the most aggressive security efforts can't stop all crimes, but we need to do our best to make our clients and their customers feel safe.
Have a Happy and Safe Holiday season!
Regional Vice President
