By now, most people have seen the commercials from law firms saying they would be happy to initiate litigation on your behalf if you were injured as the result of an establishment failing to provide adequate security. So, how do you, the property owner, proprietor, management company, etc. make sure that you are best prepared to defend your security?
To begin with, most entities should have a written security plan or policy. The plan should be developed by someone who the justice system will recognize as an expert. Most good Security Plans are a combination of Physical Security and Technology. While it is possible to have a good Security Plan of Physical Security without technology, it is virtually impossible to have a good Security Plan using technology without Physical Security.
Many businesses justify their investment in security monitors with the elimination of physical patrols or presence, however, these are far from duplicate services and technology alone does not suffice. And technology didn’t protect all those involved in the rising number of lawsuits out there.
Having some sort of physical patrol is only part of the solution when liability is at stake. “In House” Security Guards beg the question of expertise in the area, if your expertise is property related and this is what your business specializes in, will those credentials hold up for security expertise?
