Physical Security Programs

Total site security can effectively be achieved through the employment of internal and external barriers that make it too risky for a person to commit an illegal act.  The majority of all property crime occurs because there is opportunity without the risk of being caught. When the opportunity is removed and barriers that increase the perceived risk implemented most of the opportunistic crimes will subside.

24/7 can help you implement the physical and psychological barriers that will increase the risk of being caught as well as train your employees to reduce the opportunities of crime by their actions or "state of mind".  As with any successful safety program a physical security program involves developing a culture of crime prevention and awareness.

Criminologists have long discovered that suspects are motivated to commit criminal acts based on the cues to the perceived risk of being caught over the cues to the perceived reward.  With this knowledge Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, CPTED, specialists utilize three basic principles to increase the perceive risk of being caught; Natural surveillance, Natural access control and Natural territorial reinforcement.

The proper use of these three principals will develop the physical and psychological barriers necessary to establish and maintain a safe and secure working environment that can be free from most crimes.  In addition to a physical security program, the use of CCTV, security guards and access control devices are a way to implement physical and psychological barriers needed to prevent crime.  At Paladin, we perform a full security assessment and consider; lighting, landscape and design when implementing any security systems.  At 24/7, our CPTED specialist can assist you in designing a physical security program that fits your budget and specific needs.
