As many of you know, our community has seen a significant increase in breaking and entering the last few months. Particually the Hyde Square Neighborhood. We have made several arrests but the problem persists.
We also offer residential security surveys. If you are interested in having a certified crime prevention officer come to your home to conduct the survey, please contact P.O. Carlos Lara at 617-343-5624 or by email at Larac.firstname.lastname@example.org
Target hardening Home Security Surveys
A target hardening home security survey is a crime prevention technique used to prevent property crime. It is intended to make it harder for an intruder to gain access into a house, building or any other structure forcing the potential lawbreaker to look for another target.
Although most security measures have an intended goal to prevent crime, target hardening does not make a home crime proof or impenetrable. A trained police officer can conduct an on-site assessment of your property to determine and identify any vulnerabilities of your home and would recommend the level of protection that may be needed. The idea is to make your home a harder target for intruders.
Some of the concerns in target hardening include barriers, fences, walls, gates, video cameras, locks, lighting, doors, alarms, shrubs, and roofs. These are areas that may define whether your home is a hard target, or if the culprit would have easy access to your quarters.
