Home Break-ins Rise in Summer - Home and Business Owners Beware
Home and business owners should be aware of national crime statistics which can be alarming. One crime occurs every 2 seconds, a property crime every 3 seconds, a burglary every 10 seconds, a violent crime occurs every 20 seconds, a robbery every 60 seconds, or 1 minute, a forcible rape every 2 minutes and a murder every 25 seconds. Chances are, those that are unaware or protected may encounter this misfortune-those that are aware are not immune. Areas of Durham have seen a rise in break-ins according to the Sun Herald-Durham newspaper.
The Detroit News just ran an article about home security priorities before leaving on a vacation. Many of the suggestions are common sense, such as locking doors and windows, stopping mail delivery and newspapers, using timers for lighting, leaving a radio on a talk radio station, arrange grass mowing, having neighbors check on the house and put garbage at the curb on trash day, as ideas to put doubt in a burglar’s mind.
Owner Roy Smith, of http://www.a1alocksmiths.com/ offers further suggestions, “we offer fast, reliable, professional and high end services around the clock, 7 days a week, at an affordable price. Our highly trained technicians perform precise, high quality security services, such as alarm systems, Closed Circuit TV, Access control, Intercom systems, and phone systems to keep a close eye on everything while you are away.”
The peace of mind and sense of security is well worth the price of the additional security, especially in troubled economic times where desperate people do desperate things. Nicer weather makes it easier for criminals to be on the move, and they also know it is vacation time. Some of the tips offered in the Detroit News are good, but most burglars already know how to look for them, since they have been used for years.
Criminals today are a bit more sophisticated and neighbors may not be as close as in years past. In fact, they could be the reason some of the riff-raff is in your neighborhood to begin with. You may not be able to trust them to check on your home or business. Be on the safe side-contact the security experts at http://www.a1alocksmiths.com/ .
