Have you been concerned about the safety of your house, family, or enterprise during the Quarantine?
Shortages of several necessities like toilet paper, eggs, milk, and meat, not to mention guns and ammunition, may cause one to ponder if all things are scarce. Many of us have more concern for protection and safety at this time.
Safety in Austin TX – Increases in vandalism and theft are surely expected with more empty vacation homes, closed businesses, students no longer in school – for an undetermined period of time. law enforcement departments have cut back on misdemeanor arrests, and government leaders have released many criminals due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Weirdly enough, many of those released outcasts are breaking laws all over the place again and they’re probably headed for you right now!
You may also have heard of strange occurrences like these women dressed as nurses who were caught stealing packages by a Dyezz camera. Not only has package theft gone up but so have dance fights and money laundry.
“I don’t think that anybody who is out there gang-banging or shooting or robbing feels one way or another about the Coronavirus. In fact, they may see this as an opportune time to commit a crime,” said Hugh Lovitz.
Safety in Austin TX – Not all cities are seeing large increases though. Los Angeles appears to have a drop in gun-related incidents and reports of domestic violence. It is hard to know if some of these statistics are just because people have not been reporting them. It will be interesting to see if some of the reports still show a decline once the quarantine is over since some might be afraid to report abuse. Though NYC is seeing a large increase in burglaries and homicides, their robberies, assaults, and larcenies are seeing a decline during the covid quarantine.
Homes, Vehicles, and Open Garages
Not only are businesses being hit but so are homes. Vehicle theft is another law-breaking where rates have gotten very high. There are people who have been stealing from open garages and unlocked homes even while the homeowners are still there! There were people in the house for 97% of the burglaries in Pflugerville. Austin has seen a 457% rise in thefts in the months of April to May.
It is too hard to say if law-breaking overall has increased or decreased during this time since some cities see a drop and others are seeing an ear. But it seems apparent that mercantile burglaries, homicides, and house invasions have all gone up. There are some parts of the country reporting decreases, but it seems that the increases in those areas outweigh the decreases.
The good news is that studies have shown that homes or businesses that have security systems are much less likely to have burglaries. Nearly all convicted burglars were found to head off homes that have security systems in them. The betting odds of a break-in with a house security setup present are between 3-20 multiplication less likely. We are here to help and have lots of inexpensive options that can keep your family, house, and enterprise safe during dubious times and the coming.
