Downers Grove is a village located 22 miles west of downtown Chicago in DuPage County. The village has a population of 48,724 residents and 18,979 households. There is a median household income of $72,521 and the majority of the residents are between the ages of 25 and 64. As the population grows, so does the crime rate. In recent years, the number of burglaries and thefts has been rising. In the past year, there was an average of 61 crimes committed per square mile in Downers Grove. This is slightly higher than the national average of 49.6. Crime does affect the area and to get a better picture of the types of crimes, we look to last year’s statistics. There were a total of 874 crimes reported. 837 of which were property thefts and burglaries. Only 37 were violent crimes. Not to say that violent crimes aren’t a problem, but property thefts and burglaries affect a far greater number of residents. You stand a 1 in 1310 chance of being a victim of a violent crime, compared to that of a property crime, 1 in 58. Property crimes affect the residents of Downers Grove far more often. The best way to protect yourself, your family, and your home from these threats is to have the professionals at APS come and diagnose your home security needs. Today, all homes should have some form of home monitoring system in place. The FBI recently conducted a study and found that homes with a security system in place are 15 times less likely to be burglarized. Another benefit is that most homeowner insurance policies offer some form of discount to homes fitted with a monitoring system.

A security system from APS can be the most valuable investment you make when it comes to your family and home.
