According to Neighborhoodscout.com, Baltimore saw more than 29,000 property crimes last year alone, including burglary, larceny, theft, motor vehicle theft, arson, shoplifting, and vandalism. Is your business safe? What can you do to make it safer? The answer: Lighting! According to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), “the single most important CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) security feature is lighting.”
- Parking Lot Security Lighting: In a previous blog post, we outlined the benefits of parking lot security lighting. Between 2004 and 2008, more than 10% of ALL property crimes occurred in parking lots or parking garages. Wow!
- Commercial Flood Lighting: When it is properly installed, commercial flood lighting can provide safety, security, and attract customers to your business. That’s what we like to call a win-win! The National Sheriff’s Association recommends that every entrance (including windows) to your building should be well-lit to discourage criminal activity. The easiest way to accomplish this is with commercial flood lighting.
“Good lighting deters crime and produces a more secure atmosphere,” according to the DOJ.
