Any company involved in construction knows that jobsite security is a priority for a variety of reasons. Thefts of materials and equipment, liability concerns due to the dangerous nature of a construction site, trespassing, vandalism – all of these can present regular headaches. Risks aren’t always obvious either. Check out what happened when this trespasser was apprehended by authorities:
At nearly 1:00 in the morning, a Stealth security operator caught sight of an individual wearing a blue hoodie sweatshirt and approaching an unfinished unit being built in an Ontario suburb. The operator contacted local authorities to inform them of the trespass occurring, advising them of the location and description of the individual.
Minutes later, police had been dispatched to the scene, arriving and quickly locating the individual inside the unit. After making contact with the suspect, officers realized that the man had out-of-Province warrants for his arrest, and he was taken into custody.
Help Proactively Protect Against Criminal Activity and Trespassers with Remote Video Monitoring
Construction sites come in a variety of sizes, and are constantly in a state of flux, which makes keeping them secure from trespassers and other criminal activity difficult. Fences often aren’t enough to deter a criminal or vagrant who’s motivated, and security guards are both expensive to maintain and can only physically be in one place at a time.
