Security is a Collective Endeavor
In order to keep a home safe, all members in a community must come together to help ensure all the homes within the community are kept safe. This is the only way you can keep the crime rate low in the neighborhood.
When a Community Gets Together to Fend off Crime, Criminals Know They Are Wasting Their Time
That might seem like a blunt assessment, but it is also an accurate one. Criminals, by their very nature, need to make things easy for themselves. They do not want to get caught and they certainly do not want to get hurt. When the chances of negative results increases because they may be spotted before they are able to break into a home, they know they are running the risk of arrest or confrontation. Neither of these outcomes actually allows a thief to steal.
A thief may decide it is wiser to go elsewhere. And if he doesn't, then he runs the risk of going to jail.
Neighborhoods that Work Together Decrease the Chances of Crooks Being Successful
Does this mean that you no longer have to take individual responsibility for keeping your home safe? Of course not and no one would ever suggest such a thing. You and you alone are ultimately the true safeguard of your property and your family. However, most people will be quick to agree no one person can be everywhere or cover every security step required to maintain safety. This is where a collective organization such as SECURITY CONSENSUS can prove so very helpful.
