New York, NY (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
In Late July, Latimes.com reported the recent jewel heist involving the theft of $136 million dollars of jewels from the French Riviera’s Carlton International Hotel this past July, has raised security concerns for hotel, museum, and event venues. While French officials are still investigating the crime, they believe it may have been an individual, but are not ruling out the re-emergence of famous heist groups like the “Pink Panthers”. While the heists may have happened on the other side of the Atlantic, New York Metro Area exhibition venues, museums, and hotels are looking to heighten their readiness to protect against a high profile theft. Garrison Security, a leader in special event security and uniformed security guards explains how the recent heist is causing a change once more in the need for special event security.
Summertime in the New York Metro area is historically known for its museum events, and has hosted trillions of dollars’ worth of unique artwork and jewelry. When the potential emergence of a ring of high profile theft, the security industry is now being called upon to help increase the presence of uniformed security guards, and undercover security guards. While many thefts would not occur during daylight hours, Garrison suggests increasing the number of guards during visiting hours to observe and record any potential suspicious activity that may give insight to suspects should an item go missing.
“Jewel thieves in general are very calculated and educated. The presence of heightened, well trained uniformed security guards, and the installation of undercover guards may help track down an individual or groups who visit an exhibit during day hours to better understand the location they are breaking in to,” stated a Garrison representative.
Garrison Protective Services, and other industry leaders alike suggests event venues, museums, or exhibition centers consult with an experienced special event security provider to better secure their high profile exhibits, and ensure the safety of their exhibition visitors.
