How To Keep Your Office Safe During The Christmas Holidays

We are officially counting down the days until businesses close for the holidays. However, you need to know that although this is a joyous time, it is also a time that criminals can exploit. With little to no one visiting the offices over the break, the risk of burglary increases. Because of this, you need to prepare accordingly. This blog aims to tell you how to keep your office safe during the Christmas holidays.

Mobile Patrols

This is when you have guards who are either on foot or vehicular and survey the entire premises to protect the building. They can visit at agreed or random times (regardless of day or night) to check the interior and/or exterior of the property, therefore criminals cannot use a routine to exploit.

Key Holding

This is the process of allowing a trusted security company to have a key to your property. They will have this so that they can attend your building to check if there are any incidents to report, then if there is a situation they can mitigate it accordingly. They can also act as a response to an alarm activation, saving you the hassle of travelling to the office. They can be made available 24/7, depending on your desires.


CCTV cameras are used by many businesses across the UK. It works in aiding security efforts by acting as a deterrent and be able to solve crimes when needed. The system provides you with peace of mind that if a crime was to occur, there would be a bank of footage that could be used to solve an incident and act as a deterrent for other criminals.

Fire detection

Although there may be no one on site over the holidays, the risk of fire remains high. With electricity, appliances and equipment all around us, the likelihood of a fire hazard is high within the building. As there will be little to no staff on site to react accordingly in the case of a fire, it is essential you install a system that can effectively detect when there is a fire and contact the relevant personnel and emergency services. Reaction time is vital with fire hazards, therefore do not let your building burn to ruin and install a fire detection system.

Alarm activations

As burglary is more likely to occur during business closures, it is important you have someone who can respond to an alarm activation who is trained. It can be daunting to attend an alarm activation when you do not have the training or experience, therefore allow a professional to respond on your behalf and check the entire building for an incident. They will be able to deal with the situation accordingly and keep you informed throughout.
