Townsville Business Security Chekcks

Are you interested to know potential business risks?

Are you interested to know potential risks to your business security? A Business Security check comprehensively provides an outsider’s analysis on the security risks to your business and prescribes solutions to lower risk of crime affecting your business.

For crime to occur, three conditions must be in place:

  • Someone who wants to commit a crime
  • A victim (business, person or home) that does not present too many challenges
  • No-one to intervene and prevent the crime from occurring.

To combat crime our options are:

  1. Reduce the number of motivated offenders
  2. Make crime more difficult to commit
  3. Anticipate new types of crime and find ways to stop them occurring

What is a business security check?

A Business security check assesses the risks to your business and determines suitable treatment options to reduce those risks. For Townsville crime is a current issue that affects homes and businesses at an alarming rate. Our specialists understand the conditions that make crime possible and the extent of crime against businesses in your local area.

What does a Business Security Analysis involve?

  1. Determining what exactly the real problems are in your suburb
  2. Identify your “treatment options” – these are the things that can be done to make it harder for someone to commit a crime.
  3. Implement changes to improve your business’s security.

Ryan & the team at Voltec Services complete broad business security checklists. These acts as an outsider’s snapshot of a business exposure to crime and internal fraud. Potentially saving you money, time and peace of mind.

Is it worth the investment?

The Australian Institute of Criminology conducted a survey in which 49% of all businesses surveyed reported that they had experienced crime in the previous year. The average financial cost of crime against a business was nearly $5,000 (source: Psychological Costs of Crime for Small Retail Businesses, Australian Institute of Criminology, 2002).
