In what seems to be an unending barrage of vehicular smash and grabs, retail stores are vulnerable to this dangerous reality leaving owners and management wondering, will they be next?

From coast to coast, the stories in the evening news have a similar plotline: A stolen vehicle rams through the front entrance of a retail store, and thieves make off with thousands of dollars in merchandise in a second stolen vehicle before police arrive. Depending on the time of day, these brazen thefts put employees, customers, and pedestrians at risk of physical harm.

In addition to the financial loss from theft, storefronts often incur expensive building repairs, which can exceed $100,000 and take weeks to complete. Businesses can prevent these types of crimes by taking measures to bolster their perimeter security.
