Local firm offers free security audits to Rochdale businesses

Date published: 03 October 2018

Is your business satisfying your industry compliance requirements? To gain protection from the liabilities that accompany security breaches, you need to ensure you are compliant to your industry security standards. If you fail to comply, your insurance company may not pay if you are a victim of crime.

The nights are drawing in, and local crime is on the rise. Rochdale has the fourth highest crime rates in Greater Manchester**. With a crime rate of 123.27 (the number of crimes over the previous 12 months per thousand of the population) Rochdale residents certainly have every reason to be concerned, as highlighted by the article which appeared on Rochdale Online in January 2018.

You can reduce the risk of crime by taking responsibility for your own security. Installing and maintaining security solutions offers a cost-effective way of protecting people, property and products. We have a habit of taking them for granted. When was the last time you cleaned the security alarm detectors? Or, do you just take it for granted that its working correctly? When did you last consider if your CCTV system is covering the most vulnerable areas of your building?

Police force cutbacks have been well documented nationally. Greater Manchester Police have 1,831 less officers than in 2010 which represents a 23% cut.* If the only time you think about security is when you have been the victim of crime, then you need to take proactive action now!

It’s a no obligation opportunity for you to have your business premises checked by a security professional.
