Cannabis Security

In effort to protect this fast-growing market, it is required by law, in most states, to have video monitoring services. However, security cameras alone do not deter criminals or proactively protect assets. Criminals target the cannabis industry because it is known to be cash-heavy and has a product in high demand.

To protect your dispensary or grow facility from crime, you need the services of a cannabis security company with experience and a top-notch solution. Your security systems must be robust, scalable, and designed to protect your business from all types of theft.

You can count on us to secure your cannabis business.

Are Security Cameras Enough for Your Security Services?

Losses from onsite crime can put companies out of business. Crime deterrents are a necessity in today’s world but how do you know if you are offering the right combination of services for your sites?

Of course, not all vendor solutions are the same. If your customer has an imminent threat of onsite fires, an alarm company which specializes in fire alarms is critical to the solution being offered.

Security is a challenge with the Cannabis industry. Both dispensaries and growth facilities are a cash-heavy and relatively new business with different regulations in different states. There’s the threat of crime from savvy criminals who know you deal in cash and even your own employees. Finding the right cannabis security solutions is crucial, so here are some tips to help you get started:

Deterrence comes in the form of training, awareness, barriers, and strong internal controls.
We can detect any suspicious activities through electronic monitoring systems, such as alarms and closed-circuit television (CCTV), and aware personnel.
We create delays in criminal activity by setting up barriers, such as locks, security intervention, and most importantly multiple layers of protection, also known as Defense-in-Depth.
Our security measures and procedures will deny any form of criminal activity or unwanted incidents from happening in your building or office.

1. Understand Your Local Requirements.
2. Choose A Cannabis Security Solution That Is Scalable And Flexible.
3. Keep Your Surveillance System Visible.
4. Early Detection And Real-Time Warnings Are Critical.

Many patients are now beginning to start mobile medical marijuana collectives as a way to provide their patients with safe access to their medical marijuana. As many of the storefront medical marijuana dispensaries have come under recent attack, many patients are now beginning to form medical marijuana delivery services without drawing much of confrontation a storefront can attract. Delivery services can be legal under California state law and can be operated with the same legal protections that are afforded qualified patients who collectively cultivate medical marijuana. The medical marijuana collective lawyers at Cannabis Law Group can help you set up your medical marijuana delivery service.
