Apartment buildings constantly experience security challenges related to trespassing, loitering and crime.
There are a few fundamental precautions property managers can take to help help protect people, property and physical assets in apartment blocks. Firstly, its important to understand and identify potential threats based on your facility’s specific location, and how they can impact general operations. It’s also important to note/assess successful preventative measures already in operation.
Here are some of the common challenges experienced by large residential properties.
- Large perimeter areas to monitor and secure
- Multiple points of entry
- Antisocial behaviour
- Availability of resources (personal property, package room, waste and recycling)
- Anonymity due to the high volume of occupants and visitors
The most successful way to reduce threats and liabilities is to prevent them occurring in the first place. A ‘challenge’ culture or environment can be established in several ways at the perimeter and building entrances, within entry lobbies, and at stairwells, elevators, and private tenant entries.
