Business organizations have a duty to provide a reasonable level of security to protect customers and the public from criminal activity. Failure to provide protection may result in legal action for “Security Liability”.
Recognition of the potential for security liability losses and implementation of control measures will prevent or limit criminal acts and resulting legal action for alleged failure to provide adequate security.
What can be done?
A security program should be designed to protect customers and members of the public from foreseeable crime losses.
Awareness is Important
A key factor in determining the adequacy of security programs is the suitability of a particular security effort to meet “foreseeable” losses. Of course, it is not possible to know when or where a crime will occur. By examining certain factors, the extent of security program needs can be determined.
