Whether your business is currently trading or unable to due to coronavirus restrictions, it is vital to ensure your premise is tightly secured at all times due to the drastic changes in crime rates COVID-19 has caused.
In the first month that COVID-19 restrictions were put in place in South Australia, there was a massive 41% increase of commercial break-ins, which is devastating for the impacted businesses.
Not only this, but South Australia has experienced a drastic shift in the types of crimes occurring.
For example, serious assault, theft and break-ins of shops, schools and churches have increased.
Meanwhile, residential break-ins, fraud, common assault and aggravated robbery have all declined.
