Antelope has a reputation for having more people working in math and computers than any other community in California. Therefore, when we say that security services and private guards save on both tangible and intangible costs and are important to maintain a low crime rate in Antelope, it will be appreciated.
Because most people who live in Antelope work about 30-40 minutes from home, residential neighborhoods are prime targets for property crimes during a normal working day. Alarm systems alone are not necessarily best suited to protect your property while you are at work. Find out what other options that we can offer you at a reasonable price.
What Are Your Security Options?
Since the economic downturn and the rapid growth increase in 2005 -2009, California homes and businesses have become lucrative targets for property crimes.
According to the FBI, California is one of the few states where incidents of theft have increased despite a lower rate of violent crime. Even in Antelope, you have a 1 in 63 chance of being property crime victim.
Vehicle Patrol Guards – One option to consider for enhancing your property security, is hiring a vehicle patrol guard for you and your neighbors. Some neighbors have banned together to share the cost of these guards they hire, very successfully.
Vehicle guards are able to visually observe any unusual activity during the course of their normal routes. If your alarm system has been disabled by a thief or by an act of nature, the eye’s on team is likely to pick it up.
Security Alarm Response – If your alarm is activated there is a 75% chance that it is false alarm. The only way to know this for sure is to have a human respondent go to your property and see what is causing the activation. Window alarm sensors are notorious for activating when the wind or rain is heavy or when the window was opened earlier and the contacts are not quite flush on closing. Removing or eliminating sensors on your windows is not a smart option, either. In order that you don’t have leave work or put your friends in danger, ask us about our security alarm response options.
What Can You Do to Make Yourself Less Vulnerable?
One of the more interesting and continuing studies that is just becoming public is that once you have been a victim of a property crime, you are 66% more likely to be targeted again.
There are some things that you can do to improve your chances of not being a victim in the first place.
- Choose the people you associate with very carefully –This includes your children’s friends and the people you hire to come into your home. Most thefts that occur are associated with familiar association connections.
- Avoid allowing any stranger into your home or car. Don’t offer to give rides to people that are “friends of friends”. Ask to see specific identification for locksmiths, contractors and security guards if they come to your home. In California, security guards are given a state issued card that can be verified online for valid status.
- Spend a little extra on enhancing your security arrangement.
- Avoid a false sense of security such as assuming that a gated community is safer than a non-gated community. The traffic in and out includes people that do not live there and criminals will not hesitate to lie about who they are.
Even the safest communities in Northern California are within driving distance for those who wish to drop by unannounced to steal your property.
