In fact, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, in recent years, more vehicles have been reported stolen on New Year’s Day than any other holiday. The National Equipment Register reports that, over the past five years, incidents of heavy equipment theft spike between December 20 and January 1. And, these statistics are representative of a larger trend across industries.
Complicating matters, companies this year are battling more than rising crime. There’s also the global health pandemic, struggling economy and staggering unemployment rate to consider. Though we’re facing a holiday season filled with uncertainties, security doesn’t have to be one of them. Read on to learn how you can deter crime with Pro-Vigil, so your holiday season can be filled with joy.
