Lock your doors. It's amazing how many businesses are unlocked after employees leave or you leave. The crooks are shake, walking around, shaking the doors, seeing what's open. Lock your doors, secure your windows, and check it make sure everything.

Re-key your locks, it's a good time to go to a restricted or high-security key and lock system. When you use these systems like Abloy, Medeco, Primus, what happens is the keys are restricted and only for sale at the locksmith's. You're not going to be able to walk into the local hardware store with a Medeco key and get it cut by that local hardware store or the shoemaker who cuts keys.

Alarm systems are not the big deterrent anymore, they were 10, 15, 20 years ago. You could put a alarm sticker on your business, and the crooks wouldn't bother with your business. However the alarm system will scare them off, or at least them know it's time to go. Alarm systems should be monitored. Have a security guard or Runner Service when the alarm goes off, for a small fee, they show up at the business, they look inside check the doors. If you've been broken into, they call the police.

Cameras will not stop break-ins. However they are good for an investigative aid for the police after the fact. And a lot of times these burglars, these criminals are hitting business after business. When the police have video to view, then they have some evidence to tie them to the crime. So it's an investigative aid.

Retail business or a restaurant, take your empty till at the end of the night, and put that till drawer and put it at the front door, if you can look inside. Put it on the floor, put it against the door, say no cash on premises.

Fire safes and burglar safes are two different things. A fire safe will protect your business records. A burglary safe will protect your valuables and cash. If you're paying under $300 for a safe, it's not a burglary safe. Good quality burglary safes are expensive and they're rated as burglary safes. Realize fire safe is for protecting documents from fire. Get a burglary safe.

Gun safes are big, they're not that expensive, and you don't have to put guns in them. They're huge container that's very secure, even an inexpensive gun safe. Have that tucked away in the back and put some of your valuables in there. Anchor the gun safe to the floor or the wall or both.

Facebook & Social media. Be careful. When you go on vacation and you're putting postings, we're closed 'cause we're going to Hawaii, you're telling every burglar in town that your the business is, no one's there, you're gonna be away, they can see how long you're gonna be away for. I know it's difficult.

I wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
