Preventing thefts, burglaries, and vandalism

Preventing thefts, burglaries, and vandalism

Many organizations face revenue losses and insurance premium increase from crimes, like burglaries, vandalism and thefts. According to Statistic Brain, employee thefts cost U.S. businesses $50 billion every year. The loss of assets and the damage of property might be covered by property insurance; however, the interruption of business, and security concerns from employees and customers often create a longer-term impact.

Sustaining capacity and density control

Sustaining capacity and density control
