Auto theft is a crime that continues to be on the rise throughout the country, including in Delaware. Video surveillance is a tool we offer businesses interested in doing their part to combat this crime. By adding new or upgraded cameras to your commercial property, stakeholders can meet their obligations to give customers a safer place to shop, dine or conduct other business on the property. At Security Instrument, our video surveillance solutions are designed to tackle crimes like auto theft head on.  

More Ways to Fight Auto Theft 

In addition to providing electronic security solutions, we also believe in educating the public on common sense preventive measures. The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) has these valuable tips for consumers to fight auto theft:

  • Always lock your vehicle, even if you are only leaving it for a moment. 
  • Never leave your keys or ignition devices in a parked vehicle. 
  • Before exiting the car, roll up the windows and lock the doors. 
  • Park in well-lit areas, both at home and in public. 

As you can see, these tips are designed to prevent the most common strategy of auto thieves: walking through parking lots in search of unlocked vehicles. To help your customers protect their vehicles, consider posting notices with these tips in your parking area.

This can minimize your own liabilities when it comes to auto theft on your property.
