Making It Hard to Access Valuable Items

Safes and Cash Registers
Your business's safe and cash registers should be clearly visible from the street. Leave the cash register drawer open and empty after business hours. The safe should be of good quality and firmly anchored. Lock your check protector and blank checks in the safe.

Cash and Expensive Items Inside the Business
Avoid having large amounts of cash on the premises. Make bank deposits at varying times during the day. If possible, hide or lock in the safe, high-value items (such as expensive rings or watches) that would be especially attractive to a thief.

If good lighting doesn't scare off burglars, it will make it harder for them to go undetected while they are working inside or outside the building.
