Opportunity and value come together on construction job sites all across America and thieves are making the most of it. Stealing heavy equipment is a thriving crime.
The total value of stolen equipment each year in the United States is in the neighborhood of $300 million to $1 billion. The range is so large because of incomplete theft data, but any number you pick within that range represents a big problem. The thefts are happening so often because construction equipment and machinery are relatively easy to steal and easy to get rid of.
Loss or damage of construction equipment and materials can dramatically increase the expense of construction projects. Contractors with inadequate equipment security are easy targets for theft. Superintendents and project managers require a comprehensive security plan to control access to their site, which protects their valuable trailers, materials and equipment.
The Phoenix Group’s construction site security guards use access control logs to ensure that only authorized personnel enter the site. Frequent patrols in and around the site ensure that potential perpetrators know there is security on site and will look for an easier target elsewhere. Detailed material watch logs and daily activity logs further verify that proper security measures were followed.

All of our security professionals are extensively screened and fully licensed, bonded and insured.
