Trespasser With Criminal Intent Thwarted

October 16th, 2020 | By SentriForce

Construction Sites Are Vulnerable to Trespassers

Construction sites too often fall prey to criminal activity such as theft or vandalism. Construction site trespassers typically believe that construction projects are easy to swipe from. They are not wrong and we can attest.

When a construction project suffers a loss, it costs money, time, missed deadlines, and causes enormous frustration, resulting in a negative financial impact.

There are far too many construction sites that do not employ proper security practices, such as perimeter fencing, warning signage, hiding construction equipment and materials, and setting a budget for security, leaving themselves vulnerable for criminal activity.

Live Video Surveillance

Live video surveillance on a construction project by professional surveillance monitoring personnels have proven and delivered results that it is an integral part of any construction site security plan. SentriForce Managed Video Surveillance as a service, watches over your construction site in real-time during monitored hours and pro-actively engages with any potential criminals.

This solution is more cost-effective and more reliable than traditional security guards. The SentriForce video surveillance system deployed includes a series of active deterrence measures to engage potential suspects before they have a chance to harm your property.
