Cars Burglarized - Parking Security / Access Control Policy?

A friend was telling me how cars were burglarized in his parking garage, which lead me to thinking about parking garage access control policies.

I have noticed that at least some buildings or developments have pretty lax policies, e.g., past tenants / residents can still use their sticker or credential to get in or, more broadly, that credentials are not carefully tracked, allowing them to get out.

On the other hand, video is certainly more common these days so that helps even if for investigation purposes.

Curious, what do members recommend for maximizing parking garage security / access control?
