The UDF on Indianola Avenue was the scene of a 3 a.m. robbery that has luckily been solved by the Columbus police. Gas stations and other businesses that are open all night are popular targets and are often targeted in the early morning hours. There is typically one person working and not a lot of traffic during those hours, making them very desirable to criminals.
If you own a convenience store or other type of business that is open all night, it's time to take a look at your current security plan. Adding a uniformed guard to your current safety efforts can go a long way in keeping your employees and customers safe, no matter the time of day or night. A professionally trained guard understands how to deter crime and to defuse volatile situations should an incident occur. When you have a guard on premises you are able to focus on the business at hand rather than worry about theft and other crimes.
A highly-trained guard knows what to do should a crime occur, and will help to minimize the impact of a criminal event such as a robbery. They can also help to keep witnesses calm and give the police important information to solve the crime. Security guards also let your customers know that you care about their safety.
