Marinas attract criminal behavior because they offer easy access to high-value property. Good lighting and well-placed surveillance cameras may deter trespassers from creating mischief; but the most effective way to prevent theft and other serious crimes is by hiring a security team. Here’s why:
Peace of mind.
- Recreational boats and yachts can cost thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Having a security team on site lets boat owners know their property is being actively protected.
Marinas are big.
- Whether it’s a 30-foot fishing boat or a 300-foot yacht, marinas require a lot of square footage to house multiple vessels. Unlike stationary cameras, a security team can freely and regularly patrol every crevice of the property.
- The smallest yacht can hold up to 5,000 liters of fuel. Multiply that by the number of vessels stored at a marina at any given time and it’s a recipe for disaster. A security team patrolling the area can minimize the damage caused by a fire with a prompt action.
When it comes to millions of dollars’ worth of property, there’s no such thing as being too safe or cautious. Hiring a proven, highly-experienced security firm like SFM Security will limit liability and keep and your clients’ assets protected.
