The Colorado-based security firm comments on a recent article that properties and institutions all have their own unique needs and challenges in terms of ensuring the safety of property and individuals.

Big cats are not to be treated like inhabitants of a petting zoo!

The incident points out that all kinds of organizations and properties face their own unique security challenges, and that security providers need to be appropriately prepared.

An April 2 second article in The Denver Post reports that a man climbed a fence at a new exhibit at the Denver Zoo and entered an area where he was able to touch a sleeping tiger before being apprehended by police and zoo security. Colorado-based firm Spear Security Inc. notes that the incident points out that all kinds of organizations and properties face their own unique security challenges, and that security providers need to be appropriately prepared.

Spear Security Inc. states that the incident at the Denver Zoo is different from a garden variety attempted theft or vandalism, because the alleged intruder was apparently not trying to steal or harm valuable property, but simply wanted to encounter the tiger. Therefore, the danger in this instance was not to the zoo’s property, nor to its staff or visitors, but to the tiger and its unwanted human visitor. The firm notes that this is a good example of how every type of building and institution has its own unique vulnerabilities that qualified providers need to be fully aware of whenever providing security.

The firm notes that businesses holding inherently valuable property, such as banks and jewelry outlets, face a number of important challenges requiring highly experienced and visible security personnel in order to discourage would-be thieves and burglars interested in stealing private property – or in ensuring they are caught should they be foolish enough to attempt a theft. Other areas, such as schools, may be vulnerable to vandalism for any number of reasons, but the potential wrongdoers in those instances will have differing motivations and may often have to be dealt with from a somewhat different perspective.

Spear Security Inc. notes that, whether the property in question is a large public area such as a zoo or museum containing valuable, or even priceless, materials or livestock, or a large business or residential complex where both property and the safety of individuals may be at risk, appropriate security is always a must. The firm notes that today’s security customers have a number of options when it comes to obtaining the services of highly trained and experienced security guards and, when needed, security patrols to cover larger areas. The firm notes that it works close with clients to ensure that they have obtained services that are highly effective and efficient in terms of overall costs.
