THE NEED FOR Security Systems
The Need for Security is Real
It's one of the hard, cruel facts of life: Crime happens, and more than we'd like to believe. Unfortunately, it looks like crime, especially home invasions, may be on the increase.
Police officials say they are concerned the troubled US economy could lead to a swelling in suburban crime. As home foreclosures increase and unemployment skyrockets, break-ins and theft may start to set records.
There's another issue to consider as well: Many law enforcement agencies are facing severe budget cuts, resulting in service reductions - and creating longer response times.
A police executive research forum survey recently released reported that 45% of 180 police chiefs polled nationwide admitted losing crime-fighting strength in their departments due to economic woes. Home alarm systems are no longer a luxury… they are a true necessity.
Don't Be an Easy Target
A homeowner's only option is to remove any opportunities for a burglar to have an easy target. One of the greatest deterrents is noise or other attention grabbing actions. Once a burglar senses his cover is gone, he'll move on from your home and look for a more inviting (and less threatening) target.
However, only about 30% of private homes & apartments actually have security systems, and many of those may not even work correctly.
The sad part is that many people don't think about their security needs until AFTER they've become a victim of a crime. Unfortunately, for some, this mistake will not only cost them financial loss, it may very well cost them their lives.
The time is NOW to make the decision for protecting your valuables - and your family.
Remember: Property can be replaced - your family can’t.
