Make sure outside lights in parking lots are on and working properly.
Invest in more and better lighting.
Trim trees so that they are not obstructing the view to the business.
Invest in a security system or hire security personnel.
Limit the number or signs and advertising you put on your doors and windows.
Call 311 or Oncor for public lighting issues (street lights).
Call Police if you are concerned about loitering on your property.

Safety Tips

Pay attention to your surroundings when approaching your vehicle.
Always be alert.
Have your keys out in your hand making it easier for you to get in your car quickly and defend yourself if necessary.
Don’t be too trusting.
Don’t lock your purse in the trunk of your car.
Check card readers at ATMs and gas stations before using. Pull on card reader before using it to make sure it doesn’t come off. If it does, do not use the ATM or the gas pump.
Don’t leave large amounts of cash overnight in your establishment.
Keep only $50 - $100 in your cash register.
Have cameras installed in and around your business.
