It only takes a single crime in a neighborhood to motivate  homeowners to rethink what they are doing to keep themselves safe. For the victim, waiting until a crime occurs is a case of waiting too long. The best way to approach potential crime in your neighborhood is to be proactive and take steps now that will reduce your risk of becoming a victim. That approach includes a home security system and/or a security camera system.
Security cameras offer an extra layer of protection by giving intruders and thieves another reason to second-guess a decision to enter your home. They know security cameras can help to identify them for purposes of investigation, arrest, prosecution and conviction. That’s more than enough motivation to leave your property alone.
