Key control is usually compromised because of the complete lack of, or very poor key control. Crimes committed with duplicate keys are very difficult to detect, and very difficult to prove.

Using the correct safe or security container

  • Are you using your fire or record safe for storage of cash and valuables? Many businesses make this error, fire and/or record safes are built to protect paper records from destruction from fire, most are not usually meant for protection of cash and valuables. There are some units available that are constructed to provide protection from fire and burglary, you should check with your Security Professional, to be sure of what you have.
  • Some businesses that keep high value items (jewelry stores) may be required by their insurance carrier, to use high security containers, others that keep cash value securities (airline tickets) may be required by their franchise and/or their insurance carrier to use a particular security container. If you are not using the correct container, and suffer a loss, your loss may not be covered. Your Security Professional has the training and knowledge to help you make sure you are using the proper security container.
