Tightening Security Around Retail Centers

Tightening Security Around Retail Centers

When a stampede of 30+ robbers recently ransacked a Nordstrom store at a Canoga Park Mall in Los Angeles, it was one of the most brazen smash-and-grab burglaries to date. High-end stores in L.A. have been hit so hard this summer that law enforcement agencies in the region have formed a task force to tackle this new form of organized retail crime head-on. While sensational events like these make headlines, retail centers of every size suffer significant losses each year. The crime methods may vary, but they all have one thing in common: stolen merchandise must be loaded into a vehicle and driven away.

The pole-mounted surveillance system from the Sentry series is a crime-fighting tool that can be mounted on any light pole and operating within minutes. When deployed along frontage roads and intersections leading in and out of retail centers, Sentries provide an important vantage point for security monitoring. Law enforcement can quickly match date and time stamped video recordings with reported incidents to identify vehicles leaving the premises. This gives officers a jump start on investigating crime and a much greater chance of apprehending suspects.
