Pharmacy Security.jpgRecently there has been an increase of pharmaceutical crime. According to the Pharmaceutical Security Institute, incidents in the North America region increased over one hundred percent. This is partially due to ineffective pharmacy security and criminals being more versatile and creative with their methods.

The pharmaceutical industry is at a constant risk from both internal and external threats, from burglary, to internal theft, to missing shipments, this can be due to the access to prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication. Pair this with the vast range of products stocked at pharmacies and the risk increases further.

Internal threats are as important to be aware of as external. Employee theft can be a huge risk within the pharmaceutical industry, as your employees have access to powerful and expensive drugs.

You should be aware of staff behaviour and even the staff member who unloads the truck and handles deliveries should be properly vetted. Internal threats can be for financial reasons or could even be due to drug dependence or addiction.

With stricter and stricter guidelines being put into place for medical facilities, pharmacy security is more important than ever. At Sonitrol, we offer solutions for healthcare locations which help with compliance and protection of your property, patients, employees and assets.

We have special healthcare and pharmaceutical security solutions for the various types of facilities across North America, from places with high footfall, large inventories of drugs, and places prone to internal and external threats.

Criminals often target lucrative and highly addictive narcotics that are readily available at multiple locations such as pharmacies, making retail buildings, as well as the pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution units, equally vulnerable to robbery.
