Suite Security Measures

Security often involves common sense. Because any building system is only as effective as the people relying on it, we encourage you to review these security reminders to help you avoid unnecessary loss and problems within your suite.
  • When you secure your premises at the end of the business day, lock all doors and then verify that they are properly locked. We recommend locking your suite entry door after 5 p.m. even if people are working late.
  • Do not leave attaches or handbags in clear view. Coats should be hung in a coat closet since thieves often rifle through pockets looking for keys or money. Do not leave wallets in jackets hanging on chair backs and other articles of value unguarded even for a few minutes. Small articles, left in plain view, are easy targets for thieves.
  • Laptop computers should be locked away when not in use and/or consideration should be made to securely fasten them to the desk.
  • Keep all vault or safe combinations in a locked desk drawer. 
Please notify our Building Security or the Property Management Office immediately if you notice a suspicious person loitering in or about your premises.
  • Be suspicious of any person who enters your suite and when confronted makes excuses that they are lost or looking for another company.
  • Offices are most vulnerable to thieves during lunchtime and right before closing. At these times, there is often a lot of movement, and people are frequently away from their desks.
  • Put serial numbers on all business equipment to aid police in locating the equipment if it is stolen.
  • If an employee is terminated for any reason, consider changing cylinders on the lock, resetting any safe or vault combinations they may have been entrusted with, and canceling security access cards. 
  • Keys kept on a key ring should never have an identifying tag. If they are lost, they may easily be used by thieves to access your property.
  • If your firm will be closed when the rest of the building is normally open, arrange for building personnel to collect your mail and papers. A stack of newspapers outside your suite door is a clear signal that the premises are not occupied.
  • If sidewalk or corridor deliveries of goods are made, do not leave items unattended.
  • Never leave your reception area unattended when your suite entry door is unlocked.
