Commercial Burglary Prevention


  • Light all entrances, including alleys, with vandal-proof fixtures. Leave lights on inside the establishment overnight and on weekends.
  • Glass doors should be made from burglar-resistant glass and should be well lit.
  • Keep weeds, shrubbery, and debris away from the doors and windows. Lock up tools and ladders that could invite a break-in or make a burglar's job easier.
  • Install an alarm system, check it regularly, and investigate reasons behind any false alarms. Post a conspicuous notice that the property is protected by an alarm system.
  • Leave empty cash drawers open after hours.
  • Use a burglary-resistant safe; don't trust a fire safe to keep burglars out.
