Home invasion robberies in affluent neighborhoods are making headlines. Criminals are more bold and violent. Neighborhoods are hiring security guards to patrol their streets to prevent these crimes from taking place.
Crime Without Remorse. Criminals don’t care about their victims. Their focus is on stealing what they can. They know there is a lucrative market for stolen, high-end goods on the internet–often through legitimate retail sites. They also know that if they happen to get caught, odds are good that they’ll be out on the streets without spending a day in jail. The incentive to make money by stealing from others with little downside is what drives unscrupulous individuals to carry out these illegal acts.
Visible security guards patrolling throughout neighborhoods can discourage criminal activity. Criminals are likely to move on to other neighborhoods that don’t have in-person security. Why are security guards effective? As we’ve seen, security cameras do little to deter criminals. Crooks know they are on camera so they wear clothing that makes it hard to identify who they are.
Expect the home invasion robberies to continue in places like Beverly Hills, Bel Air, the Hollywood Hills, Newport Beach, Los Altos, Malibu and Palo Alto in California and Paradise Valley, Scottsdale and Cave Creek in Arizona, especially during the holidays.
Access Patrol Services provides both armed and unarmed security guards. The guards patrol neighborhoods and common public areas 24-7.
