Chicago Home Security Can Help Protect People from Rising Crime Chicagoland Local and Family Owned
By now, you’ve probably heard about what happened to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s son and the rash of break-ins taking place throughout Cook County. In the last few months alone, the police were called to investigate crimes in Elgin, Park Ridge and Darien. So by the headlines, it seems that one can’t be too careful these days, especially when it comes to Chicago home security and personal safety. To their credit, local police departments and public works staff have been ardently sharing information since the increase in criminal behavior began, but the disturbing incidents continue.
So what else is there left for Chicago residents to do? Calling for a free security consultation is a great place to start. It can help identify where the security lapses are and offer personalized suggestions on how to close them before the criminals come knocking. Even the local police are urging residents to consider beefing up home security. Plus, there are options available through the security consultation process that will increase personal safety as well. The list of examples includes, but isn’t limited to medical alarms, low temperature sensors, gas leak detection and panic alarms.
A portable panic alarm may have come in handy when the Mayor’s son was mugged just beyond his front doorstep. If he had one and was able to push the button, it would have instantly sent out a request for help to the local authorities. Incidentally, they are reportedly now having a hard time identifying and locating the teen’s alleged attacker. If they had been notified of the incident while it was still going on, they might have been able to catch the perpetrators in the act, thereby prosecuting them sooner than later.
Similar may be said for the break-ins taking place in the county. Today’s Chicago home security systems can do everything that the local police are suggesting residents do and more. For example, many of the criminals broke in through glass sliding doors and there are security systems available that feature glass break sensors, window and door contact elements.
