Dancing Vagrant in Modesto
Stealth Monitoring wishes Happy Holidays to all its clients and friends. Please enjoy this entertaining security video.
On the serious side, unauthorized visitors, such as this shopping center vagrant, homeless people, bored kids, and trespassers, are an important concern for commercial real estate owners. On-site managers and tenants are only on the property for part of the day. Outside of that period the shopping center doesn't have staff to watch what's happening overnight and weekends. There are plenty of places to hide in parking lots, parking garages, loading docks, dumpsters, and back alleys.
This shopping center had Stealth monitoring live surveillance. A Stealth operator saw the trespasser and called the Modesto police who took the dancer away in custody. Without cameras and live monitoring, you don't know what's going on at your property. You have no way to discourage, much less deter, people who shouldn't be there.
Unauthorized visitors pose a liability problem. They can leave trash, damage and deface landscape and buildings, and engage in illegal drug activities. A vagrant is just the tip of the iceberg. If you don't have proactive security, trespassers - not you - will feel safe off-hours at your property. They can regularly return and bring others.
It doesn't stop there. Once your property becomes known for having no or insufficient protection, more serious criminal elements can move in. Shopping center vagrants give way to vandals and thieves who can attack your building. They may gain access to your roof. They can break into stores and damage HVAC systems on the ground and roof to steal copper or the units themselves.
