Taken a stroll through any of our Downtown Cores in the last week or two? You’ve likely noticed the boarded-up shopfronts, lack of cars and pedestrians. As we all stay home and do our part to promote physical distancing, one group has been enjoying a booming period – thieves.
According to the Vancouver Police Department, commercial break-ins have grown 100 per cent between the first two weeks of March and the last two weeks. As our commercial areas empty out, it’s created opportunities for crime to flourish. Are you doing everything you can to stop it?

All incidents are detailed in an incident report so you are fully aware of the situation and how it was dealt with.
This cutting-edge service utilizes the latest in GPS tracking to ensure full coverage of client property. We begin by consulting with you on the most efficient and effective routes for our team to patrol. Once we’ve devised the routes our security patrols will take, a GPS tracker is installed on-site, with patrols checking in digitally as they pass. Their location, and time since last check-in, can be instantly tracked through the app. This provides real-time peace of mind that’s accessible with one click from anywhere in the world.
