The British Crime Survey 2009/10 shows that vehicle-related thefts and vandalism are stable compared with 10% falls in police recorded crime for both offences against vehicles and criminal damage. A previous survey* states that 19% of vehicle crime takes place in car parks, 3% is in "work" car parks and 16% in "other" car parks. It makes commercial sense that anything you can do to reduce crime and make people feel safe in your parking area will benefit your operation.
Even if your facilities do not experience vehicle related crime, creating an environment where customers feel safe will ensure their repeat custom. Also, displaying a nationally recognised award will help to benchmark your parking facility.
