Special Consideration for Cannabis Dispensary Security in Chicago

Posted on November 9th, 2020 by Alert Protective

During its 40 years of experience as a prevalent Chicagoland company, Alert Protective has built expertise in various niche type industries.  Because of their unique nature, these niche type industries require specific security concerns and solutions that will help keep their property and business safe.

As these niche industries grow and expand and new specialized businesses take root in the city, it is important to emphasize the need for a customized security plan. 

Chicago and the Cannabis Industry

As Illinois continues to process new licenses for cannabis dispensaries, Alert Protective Services has met the resulting security challenges with effective solutions for these new businesses.  So how do we do this?

First, we must meet the complex regulatory requirements imposed by the local and state jurisdictions for cannabis dispensaries.  Many of these jurisdictions have specific requirements as to where cameras should be located and which monitoring services should be utilized.  Failure to meet these requirements during the design phase can result in unnecessary additional costs later on.

Next, we build a customized system to prioritize employee safety.  Cannabis dispensaries are high-frequency targets for theft and robbery, so providing the much-needed safety and security for your employees is crucial.  Employees need to be able to alert the authorities if a violent intrusion were to occur from anywhere in the location.  New, integrated personal protective technologies will provide your dispensary with that comfort.

Finally, Alert Protective Services merges far perimeter, near outdoors, and site interior detection and monitoring points all to a single system.  Any attempt at product diversion is detected, reported, and recorded as thoroughly as possible utilizing this high-tech system. 

Are You Protecting Your Business Investment?

In the Chicagoland area, Alert Protective’s team has successfully worked with dispensary owners to maximize their security needs.  If you are a new dispensary owner or current owner lacking the security needed to maintain a safe working environment, please reach out for a free consultation.
