Small businesses are often on the front line in dealing with crime. Almost all commercial and small businesses face crime threats including trespassing, theft, and vandalism. According to the FBI over 30% of US burglaries occur in businesses, and these business are often attacked when they are closed or not attended. Some of the top types of businesses that are burglarized include storage facilities, specialty stores, restaurants, construction sites, and parking lots.

Choice Virtual Guard Service is taking it a step further by deploying active deterrence security systems. Their systems monitor cameras with AI to detect intruders. If an intruder is detected the systems use strobe lights and loud 2-way audio to warn subjects that enter property.
