Crime has been on the rise in recent years. Last year alone, there was an average of 94 crimes committed per square mile. This number is almost twice the national average of 49.6. To get a better understanding of what crimes are being committed, we look at last year’s statistics. There were 1,360 crimes reported, 1,270 of which were property thefts or burglaries. Only 90 were violent crimes. The chance of being a victim of a violent crime is low, 1 in 655. However, the chance of being a victim of a property crime is 1 in 46. You can that property thefts and burglaries affect a far larger number of the population and they occur far more frequently. One of the best ways to lower your chance of being a victim is to have the professionals at APS outfit your home with a security system. All homes should have some form of monitoring system in place. Recently, the FBI performed a study and found that homes with a security system are15 times less likely to be burglarized. Another benefit of a home security system is that most homeowner insurance policies offer considerable discounts for homes with systems in place.

A security system is an essential item for your home and place of business. It may well be the most important item you purchase.
