Construction site theft is a major issue that costs businesses billions of dollars each year. When it comes to businesses that are at an increased risk of theft and property damage, construction sites sit firmly near the top of the list. Commercial construction sites are hit with more than $1 billion in heavy equipment theft annually.
In fact, residential construction sites lose more than $4 billion in theft and vandalism every year. More than 70 percent of these thefts are from job sites that lack proper construction site security monitoring. Theft and property damage on construction and jobsites is a large problem across America, but especially so in Houston. In fact, a 2012 study by the U.S. National Insurance Crime Bureau identified Houston as the TOP location for construction site equipment theft in the nation.
If you own or operate a construction site or jobsite in the Houston metro area, the security of your construction or jobsite should be a top priority.
