It’s important to understand that all strata buildings, both old and new, are vulnerable to criminal activity. This is why they should be treated with a high level of caution to prevent illicit access and activity.
As we all know, Vancouver, BC, much like other cities in Canada, is filled with scores of strata buildings. If your building does not have proper crime prevention measures in place, then crime will most likely be a reality.
Protect Your Strata Building
According to the Vancouver Police Department, break and enters at strata buildings, houses, businesses, and organizations (combined) are a common reality.
Here is a look at the numbers in break and enters just over the past year:
In 2022, it was reported that Vancouver had a crime index of 37.16 and a safety index of 62.84.
National statistics now suggest that, for every 1,000 homes, 12.25 percent will be burglarized in Canada, so never assume that you are totally safe just because you live in a high-rise building or strata community.
If you own or manage high-rise strata buildings, then it is important to employ proper security measures to protect your residents, properties, and assets from potential threats.
Most modern strata buildings already have security measures in place, such as CCTV cameras; however, these are frequently insufficient to keep trespassers and criminals out of buildings. Putting in place additional security measures, such as locking doors behind you, keeping an eye out for strangers, or reporting them, are easy ways to keep unwanted visitors out of your facility. Even better, activating security guards to keep a close eye on your buildings is often the best approach for safety, security, and peace of mind.
