Distribution Center Security Guard Services

Top Distribution Center Security Guard Services Company in CA

Distribution centers are enticing targets for criminals. They contain large quantities of new merchandise (the type that’s easy to sell anonymously on the Internet). The hustle and bustle of the operation, with trucks coming in and out, loading and unloading often around the clock, gives thieves the impression that no one would notice if packages went missing.

Inside Job With Outside Help.

Individual workers can steal without help, but according to security expert Barry Brandman of Danbee Investigations, a more common scenario is for an employee to collude with a driver to remove stolen items.

Implement these security safeguards to reduce the temptation to steal.

Inventory Control.

While difficult because of the constant turnover, inventory audits and control are a must. To make the task more manageable, assign managers to control specific types of items and have them responsible to track only those items.

Distribution Center Security Guards.

Visible security guards are one way to deter theft on loading docks and other merchandise exit points. Distribution security guards can keep a watchful eye on employee and truck drive activity as well as look for packages or packages in the wrong locations. Sunrise Security offers around the clock security guard options for distribution centers.

Separate Secure Areas.

Valuables items, including electronic equipment, jewelry, high-end clothing and anything that can be easily sold, should be stored in a secure area that requires access through a locked entrance or by showing clearance to a security guard.

Video Surveillance.

Odds are, employee theft can be caught on video. Have security personnel review surveillance video in real time, especially of sections of the center that are prone to theft.

Employee Lockers.

Provide lockers to employers to place their personal belongings. This will prevent employees from being tempted to place items in backpacks, bags or purses.

Employee Education.

No doubt, there are nefarious employees whose primary goal is to steal, but the majority of those employees who steal do so because they see others steal and get away with it. Educate employees that the center takes employee theft seriously and those caught will be fired and prosecuted. Then, follow through.
