Retail & Commerical Real Estate
Security Focus: Theft
According to the National Retail Federation, retail parking lots are common sites for crimes, with over 2 million incidents occurring annually, leading to over $6 billion in losses. These areas account for more than one-third of all retail crimes, being particularly attractive to criminals due to poor lighting and numerous blind spots. The most common crimes include car theft, contributing to nearly 40% of all parking lot crimes, and thefts from vehicles, with over a million reported break-ins each year. Shoppers carrying packages or valuables are also frequent targets of theft in these areas.
Crime affects Brand image.
A significant 90% of shoppers have expressed that crime influences their shopping habits, indicating a strong correlation between safety concerns and consumer behavior. This substantial percentage underscores the importance of addressing and mitigating criminal activities to maintain a conducive and secure shopping environment.
How it affects Tenants
Crime significantly influences commercial tenants and the overall value of commercial properties, according to a study by the National Association of Realtors, suggesting a potential depreciation in property value by up to 20% due to crime. Such criminal activities pose challenges in attracting and retaining tenants, subsequently elevating insurance costs. Additionally, tenants’ businesses face the repercussions of criminal acts such as robbery, resulting in the loss of inventory, equipment, and money, further causing operational disruptions and revenue losses. The prevalence of crime compromises the sense of safety and comfort among customers, potentially diminishing foot traffic and sales, thus adversely impacting business prosperity and sustainability.
