Running With the Big Dogs: Partnering With Police K9 Trainers to Boost Your Self-Storage Security


Most self-storage facilities have robust security systems these days, but even if your property has the usual components (access control, cameras, alarms, etc.), there’s still another layer you can add to your defenses. Local law-enforcement agencies are always seeking fresh places to conduct police-dog training, and establishing a partnership with them can benefit your business in many ways. Not only do storage properties make a great setting for this type of work, officer presence can deter crime and give tenants a sense of safety. That said, there are important considerations. In this thread on the Self-Storage Talk online community, members are discussing their experience with K9 drills. Read their advice or share your own story.
