Construction Site Security Service Can Deter Trespassers and Potential Thieves

Stealth'es proactive construction site security service watches properties across the United States and Canada in real time. Trained security operators watch for suspicious activity to help deter crime before it happens. The most common crimes at construction sites include vandalism, property damage, and theft.

Construction site security service operators can follow movements and activity remotely with strategically-placed outdoor surveillance cameras that are designed to withstand a variety of lighting and weather-related factors.

At 5:36 a.m., a construction site security service operator saw three trespassers enter an apartment community under construction in Burbank, California and called police. Responding officers arrived and the suspects tried to escape. Their attempt was unsuccessful and the police made an arrest.

In this instance, a construction site security service operator helped prevent an undesirable activity from happening. However, not all construction sites are so lucky.

The incident below took place at a property without Stealth's construction site security service.

In the last few month, dozens of burglaries and thefts at construction sites have been reported in Texas. Lubbock authorities believe the same individual or group is responsible for these thefts. In one case, a gas stove was taken, which caused an explosion due to the open gas line. Fortunately, there were no injuries but it did cause major damage to structure.

The suspects are still at large.

Appliances are one of the most commonly stolen goods from construction sites, especially at multifamily apartments and other types of residential properties. Appliances often include dishwashers, microwaves, and refrigerators. Many residential properties have multiple units that are being built and furnished simultaneously. Without adequate security, thieves can easily come in and steal appliances long before anyone notices. Strategically-placed cameras, watched live, can help keep appliances and other valuable assets safe.
