St. Louis Hit by Rash of Car Break-ins

The situation has become dire. People all over the St. Louis Metro Area are afraid to leave their cars unattended on parking lots due to a rash of recent car break-ins. Not only during special events like a Blues’ game at the Enterprise Center downtown, where over a dozen cars were broken into this week at nearby parking lots during the game, but even at places of work where a growing number of car break-in incidents are being reported, including a UPS parking lot, Amazon shipping area, industrial parks in St. Peters and St. Charles, Sauget, Illinois and many others around the area on both sides of the river.

Authorities are hoping to identify the opportunist smash-and-dash thieves, who are traveling in groups of 4-5 and hitting up to 50 cars at a time, by reviewing available security camera surveillance video footage at these locations. But unfortunately, many of these businesses do not have video surveillance cameras installed on their premises, at least not in parking lots.

Take Action Against Car Break-ins

The financial cost of adding security cameras to your business is miniscule compared to the high cost of car repairs and increased insurance premiums due to claims filed, not to mention the time wasted filing police reports, insurance claims, and the personal and emotional aggravation as a result of these car break-ins.

To help protect your business property, vehicles, and possibly even prevent personal injury to your employees or customers, we strongly urge you to take the offensive and call PASS Security today to arrange an onsite visit to your business by one of our security experts who will evaluate your property and advise you regarding the best plan of action to take, the best surveillance security cameras to choose for your business, or whole camera system if you do not currently have any cameras, how to position these security cameras, and any additional security measures you can take at your place of business, including access control systems for exterior doors and entrance ways.
