    Eric, 80% of our police operate on a fully digital police VKG radio network so it is all scrambled now but they do have analogue for a backup in some black spot areas.

      Most of the large metro areas have switched to a P25 Digital trunked system, however there are scanners capable of monitoring these. If the channel is encrypted, you are out of luck. Lucky for us, the dispatch channels have remained un-encrypted so far.

Our “enemies” are deft at computer hacking and may trace you back to our primary locale. You have forced me to compromise my situation to protect your vulnerable flank. This issue will be addressed later.

        That isn't true all the time. In the case of my store the property management company has outer door
        locksmithing authority and has stated in the lease contract that agents of the property manager may
        enter our premises in the case of an emergency (example- to prevent a fire from spreading to the
        rest of the complex.). Emergency is a vague word.

        At other retail locations my company will contact the property management security to investigate
        suspicisous activity outsidethe building. But if there is a crime in progress, theft, or property
        damage after hours we call the po pos first. We are gonna need
        a pd case # for insurance purposes anyways!

          WOW, after thinking about it, the property management company having keys kinda creeps me out. The maint/janitor dude they have working for them has this wierd tweaker/ crazy dog look about him. In fact, the first time I saw him started CCTV surveillance immediately cause he looked like a possible "Loss Prevention" client.

            I never asked for keys to any tenant's store. In fact, it is in the manual that they must change all locks when the space is rented.

              I never said that you asked for keys. One poster suggested that you (the security company) become a keyholder to the store and bypass an actual store employee from coming in case of an alarm.

              That will never happen. Ever.

                Why not? I've seen many types of stores give security keys to be a keyholder. I've done it as an Patrol Officer for a company that did Alarm Response. Matter of fact one of our accounts was an anchor store at a mall.

                  I have an alarm & access customer (multi national company everyone has heard of) that wanted someone to respond to alarms at there office. None of their people wanted to come in (sales office w 65 people to multi-national retailer), though it was usually their own people causing it. Their HQ contacted me, and I put them in touch with a local guard service.

                    When I used to live local to 1 site (2 minute drive) I was called out 4 times in 2 days - Xmas and Boxing Day - public hol. rates x 4 hours x 4 trips. Someone had been into the warehouse and not advised the alarm company. 1st call was at 0730 Xmas morning and then again at 1600 - both days. For about 2 hours work all up I was paid 48 hours pay (including allow.) - so I was over the moon for this next pay packet. To save $$$ onsite patrol were given their own prox. card and code but with 7 different staff and abuse of facilities out of hours, it was canned a week later when things went walkies.

                      My 2 cents is not to worry about what happens in an anchor store. Mall Security 's primary job is to maintain the common areas, food courts and parking lots. Whatever happens in an anchor store is their problem, not yours.

                        I am finally getting the stores on board with my idea.

                        I tell them facts like

                        - we are here 24 hours a day/365 days, we can save them the hassle from responding to false alarms

                        - we can check the business, turn cameras on it, and notify them of whats going on. People appreciate this type of thing in the middle of the night.

                        So far, most places are on board with this. I make it clear that I dont want access or passwords, just a phone call from the alarm company. By policy, we are prohibited from entering a tenant space (vacant tenant spaces exempt since we take possession when the retailer leaves) without a store employee.

                        I will be composing a letter to go to all retailers to get them all on this.
