Solicitation is not allowed in the building or on the building premises. Please notify Building Security at 813-245-7049 immediately if you notice a solicitor within the building. Report as much specific information about the person’s appearance and behavior as your can. Building staff will locate the person and as quickly as possible escort him/her off the premises.
Report any suspected theft, no matter how small, to Property Management at (813) 875-3000 immediately. You may also notify the Police Department. They may be on the trail of a thief targeting office buildings, and your report may help them complete their investigation more effectively. The building's insurance policy does not cover the theft of tenants' personal belongings. Personal property insurance is the responsibility of each tenant.
To record the details of any accident, theft, or injury that occurs on the property, an incident report must be filed. Please notify the Building Security at 813-245-7049 as soon as an incident occurs so we may follow up with the appropriate record-taking. We appreciate your cooperation in answering any questions the building staff may have pertaining to the incident.
SUITE SECURITY MEASURES
Security often involves common sense. Because any building system is only as effective as the people relying on it, we encourage you to review these security reminders to help you avoid unnecessary loss and problems within your suite.
- When you secure your premises at the end of the business day, lock all doors and then verify that they are properly locked. We recommend locking your suite entry door after 5 p.m. even if people are working late.
- Do not leave attaches or handbags in clear view. Coats should be hung in a coat closet since thieves often rifle through pockets looking for keys or money. Do not leave wallets in jackets handing on chair backs and other articles of value unguarded even for a few minutes. Small articles, left in plain view, are easy targets for thieves.
- Keep all vault or safe combinations in a locked desk drawer. Remind personnel to keep copies of their credit card numbers and contact addresses in a safe place.
- Dial Security at 813-245-7049 immediately (in their absence call 911) if you notice a suspicious person loitering in or about your premises. Be suspicious of any person who enters your suite and when confronted, makes excuses that they are lost or looking for another company.
- Offices are most vulnerable to thieves during lunch time and right before closing. At these times, there is often a lot of movement, and people are frequently away from their desks.
- Occasionally examine your wastebasket contents at the end of the day to see if any equipment or valuables have been hidden for removal later.
- Put serial numbers on all business equipment and keep this information recorded in a safe place to aid police in locating the equipment if it is stolen.
- If an employee is terminated for any reason, consider changing cylinders on the locks and resetting any safe or vault combinations they may have been entrusted with. Additionally, cancel the employee’s security access codes through building security, if applicable.
- Keys kept on a key ring should never have an identifying tag. If they are lost, they may easily be used by thieves to access your property.
- If sidewalk or corridor deliveries of goods are made, do not leave items unattended.
- Never leave your reception area unattended when your suite entry door is unlocked.
- Consider having routine background checks done on prospective employees as an additional security precaution.
