Vandalism at University Highlights Need for All-Hours Security, Says…

Vandalism takes many forms,

While bias crimes can severely harm morale and are therefore extremely serious, even seemingly harmless pranks can lead to costly repairs and delays in business or construction.

A September 13 article on The Morning Call reported on the theft of a banner from outside the Jewish Student Center at Bethlehem Pennsylvania’s Lehigh University. Though the removal of a banner that read “Office of Jewish Student Life” by itself may not necessarily seem to be an act of hate, it comes in the wake of another sign being stolen from the center and a national increase in tension related to apparent hate crimes. Denver-based company Spear Security Inc. says that vandalism and thefts for various reasons are, unfortunately, a very common problem. While bias crimes can severely harm morale and are therefore extremely serious, even seemingly harmless pranks can lead to costly repairs and delays in business or construction. That’s why having security that operates under all conditions, not just during regular hours, is a must for many different types of properties.

Spear Security Inc. says that having any kind of security presence on location is more than enough to deter petty criminals the vast majority of the time. More often than not, vandalism is committed by youngsters acting out in some way, the firm notes, adding that the presence of a uniformed authority figure typically makes crimes that may be minor in the eyes of the law –though hardly insignificant to business and property owners – not worth the risk. The security firm adds that, on the other side of the coin, there are older common criminals whose vandalism may actually be part of a break-in or an attempt to steal valuable items such as copper wiring. Fortunately, the presence of personnel can also discourage these individuals, who are likely to leave in hopes of finding an easier target. A security presence that keeps a watchful eye on an owner’s assets and employees safeguards lives and property, the company adds.

Spear Security Inc. says that, with the help of top tier training, state of the art communications and surveillance technology, and more than 20 years of experience in general security services, it is fully equipped to deal with many of today’s security threats. The firm notes that while relatively rare, there are threats that can threaten lives as well as property, it is therefore very often of the utmost importance to have excellent security on-site to either deescalate or neutralize these potential threats. Having the support of a security team that can deal with these situations is the difference between subpar and superb security, the company adds.

Spear Security Inc. says that maintaining visibility is obviously important but staying out of the way of a company’s business is just as important; otherwise, it defeats the purpose of having security in the first place. The firm concludes that good security personnel should be capable of handling all threats and maintaining a safe and secure atmosphere without in any way hampering the course of daily business.
