Security Q&A: Answering Your Top 5 Most Asked Security Questions

According to studies, in 2021, there were over 267,000 burglaries in England and Wales. So there is no wonder why security on residential and commercial buildings has become more prominent throughout the UK. However, there has been a decline in overall burglaries over the past few years, and residences/properties equipped with security systems tend to be less likely to be targeted by criminals.

In this blog post, we answer the most common questions regarding security and its benefits.

  1. Where do I begin?

Whether you are a new business owner whose never had to outsource a security company, or an existing business owner whose security protocols and system needs updating, the first step to take is to assess your individual needs.

Evaluate your priorities, is it the safety of your employees, your goods or the property in general? Or all of these? Well, once you have established exactly what aspect of your security can be improved and developed, then contact us directly so we can give you a thorough step-by-step process of what we recommend and what action to implement.

  1. Can I completely trust a third party with my business security?

Yes! However, with any third party service, we recommend you do your research on their legitimacy. Check if they have the correct qualifications and authority to do what they say they can do. Here at Delta Security Management, we have a wealth of experience, knowledge and all of our Operatives hold valid, current front line licences as issued by the Security Industry Authority (known as the S.I.A.) This means that they have been trained, tested, assessed and had numerous background checks to ensure that they are suitable to hold such important status in our industry.

  1. My business is located in a low-crime area and has never been vandalised or burgled. Should I bother implementing security measures?

Although you may not have experienced any crime against your property, just the presence of a security system can deter potential criminals. Additionally, security measures are for universal use, for the protection of your assets and employees. Including fire alarms for environmental hazards like water leaks, gas, power loss etc. Or surveillance systems for non-crime threats like broken elevators, which may put your staff or visitors in danger.

Don’t wait for a costly incident to happen before you put security layers in place! Get ahead of the criminals by starting now.

  1. Are alarm response and keyholding necessary?

Yes, not only does it reduce additional security responsibility but we are always available to respond, know the proper procedures and have technical knowledge to handle any situation correctly.

By putting the responsibility onto you or your employees you are placing them in front of a number of significant risks.

  1. Is there a trial period to gauge whether I need the service(s)?

Absolutely! Here at Delta Security Management, we offer a 1 month ‘Try Before You Buy’ trial. We will set the service up quickly and efficiently and you can enjoy the peace of mind of having a professional security company responding to your premises in the early hours of the morning and at weekends, for a month before deciding if you want to continue.
