Shopping centers present unique security challenges. Each one deals with its own set of issues from theft, trespassing and property damage, to site accidents, guard expenses and more.
Shopping center managers and owners have an obligation to provide a safe environment for their retailers and shoppers. That can be difficult when the property is located in a less than desirable part of town. Crimes that occur in and around a shopping center can be costly and endanger the safety of your retailers and shoppers. When criminal activity persists, it can increase maintenance and repair costs, lower property values, and decrease retailer rental demand, all of which can impact your NOI.
