Homelessness and vagrancy have increased significantly, and thanks to many municipalities having well-known laws against camping in public spaces like parks, those looking for a spot to bed down may seek out other public but less-conspicuous places- like your office building courtyard or commercial property.
In this Arrest of the Month video, a suspicious individual set up at a California office complex, but with Stealth watching- they didn’t stay long.
In the video above, at 9:45 p.m., an alert Stealth security professional spots a suspicious individual on camera at a Tustin, California office complex, carrying a backpack and bundle and opening the complex mailbox. Operators immediately sounded the on-site audible alarms to discourage the individual from hanging out, but they were unresponsive. As a result, the Stealth operators took the next step, contacting local law enforcement and providing dispatch with a description of the individual and their location. Officers arrived minutes later and made contact with the now shirtless loiterer, and ultimately placed him under arrest.
Help Secure Your Property and Reduce Risks to Tenants with Proactive Security
Loitering causes a myriad of security concerns and issues. From deterring customers and employees from entering the building or property, to causing damages and creating health and safety risks, loitering is an unfortunate- but common- issue commercial property owners and managers face.
Rather than asking or expecting tenants and their employees to handle these uncomfortable and potentially dangerous situations, implementing a proactive security solution can help deter criminal activity like loitering from properties you own or manage.
Live video monitoring goes beyond typical security measures like lighting, cameras, and security guards. With Stealth’s solution, a trained security professional monitors cutting-edge cameras with analytics that are specifically designed to detect activity rather than simple movement. Using this combination of technology and human intelligence, our operators can take appropriate action when they spot anything out of the ordinary, sounding audio deterrent alarms or contacting local police when necessary.
