Rooftop Security Cameras Lead Police to Trespassers at Shopping Center

Posted by Rick Charney on Sep 14, 2017

Trained shopping center surveillance operators can protect your HVAC units and interior building access with rooftop security cameras. Not only do vandals and thieves pose a threat to outdoor assets, they can put themselves in danger, which is a liability to the shopping center.

Remote Surveillance Leads Police to Stop Rooftop Climbers

At 4:26am, a shopping center surveillance operator watches a client site with rooftop security cameras. One of the trespassers scales down the wall and jumps down. The rooftop security operator calls the local police. The second suspect climbs from the roof and jumps off. Rooftop security cameras see two more trespassers. The local police arrive at the shopping center.

Shopping centers should consider whether have adequate rooftop security. Copper theft cases are a serious problem for shopping centers, shopping malls, office spaces, and other types of commercial properties. Thieves target metals to sell for a profit. Often times, the damage on the HVAC units and outdoor assets exceeds the value of the copper and metals.

Businesses lose millions of dollars annually because of copper theft. On-site security guards cannot be everywhere at once. Guards can’t see many roof locations from the ground. Stealth’s rooftop security solution includes virtual security guards who can watch cameras placed at key points like the roof to help deter criminal activity. A remote operator can activate an on-site speaker to deter trespassers, vandals, and thieves. If the situation continues, a Stealth control center monitor can call the on-site security guard or local police.
