It’s important as a shop owner, to take proactive measures to protect your business, employees, and customers. First Response Security can provide several measures that you can implement to mitigate the risks of theft, vandalism, personal safety, parking lot security, and false damage claims.

Theft and Break-ins

The most significant security threat for mechanics shops, as well as most businesses in Portland, Oregon, is theft and break-ins. To prevent these incidents, shop owners should consider the following measures:

  • Install a monitored security system with cameras and alarms to monitor the premises.
  • Make sure to enroll in our Alarm Response Our highly trained security officers will respond when your alarm goes off, providing a detailed report about their findings.
  • Keep valuable tools and equipment in a secure location, in sight of your monitored cameras


Vandalism has become synonymous with Portland Oregon and has become a costly expense for business owners.  To prevent vandalism, you should consider the following measures:

  • Keep the shop well-lit to deter vandals.
  • Get AI cameras installed with their monitored systems. AI cameras can alert you when specific actions occur. This can include people crossing barriers during certain times, wearing specific articles of clothing like hoodies or backpacks, and many other programmable actions.

Parking Lot Security
