Due to some recent business breaks in the Sunshine Coast District, please keep in mind some of these business based security tips and suggestions:

  • When locking up and leaving your business, be aware of your surroundings.
  • Are there any suspicious vehicles in the area?
  • Are there any person(s) loitering around the shop or has anyone been doing so during business hours?
  • Consider placing warning signs around business to deter intruders such as ‘no cash kept on premises’
  • Ensure there is clear visibility inside and outside of your business through the use of good lighting
  • If applicable, keep shrubs and trees trimmed to prevent concealment of the premises
  • Protect windows and doors by installing security screens
  • Consider using deadlocks and solid doors
  • Consider reeinforcing glass doors with shatter resistant film
  • Consider installing a safe that is always locked and anchored to the floor and wall of the premises.
  • Limit cash kept on premises
  • Install CCTV cameras
