Local Police Report Increasing Crime as Economic Situation Grows Bleaker and Unemployment Numbers Climb
HOUSTON - The experts at Houston's leading home security company for over a decade, Safeguard Home Security, remind citizens of the importance of solid home security systems as the nation faces some of the toughest economic times in years and crime stats steadily rise. With the United States Federal Government contemplating bank bailouts, insurance bailouts and now possibly one for the flailing auto industry, the signs of economic difficulty could not be clearer.
As jobs are eliminated daily, homes go into foreclosure and the economic climate grows more volatile, crime increases in cities large and small - Houston hit particularly hard as a major metropolitan city.
Safeguard Home Security founder John McCreary wants to help Houstonians protect their investments and most precious possessions, their family. Ensuring that home security systems are suitable for the property and working properly is his primary goal.
"Nothing could be more important than family and the home that serves as their safe haven amid all of the volatility today. We do everything we can to help citizens feel secure in protecting that," said McCreary.
"With Texas' unemployment rate on the rise, correspondingly high crime stats and the dire state of the national economy, residents need to ensure that their property and their family are well protected. It's a small price to pay for a big piece of mind," McCreary added.
McCreary added that history shows that every recession dating back to the 1950s has been accompanied by an increase in crime, particularly property crime. This combined with the poor economic situation the nation is experiencing today and oncoming holiday season, creates an unpredictable and historically unsafe environment.
Statistics have shown that homes without a security system are two to three times more likely to be invaded. In addition to deterring criminals from breaking in, home security systems add value to the property and can save 10 to 20 percent on some homeowner's insurance policies.
John McCreary and Rusty Jones, the founders of Safeguard Home Security, have been protecting Houston homes and businesses for over thirty years and are one of the largest independently-owned security companies in the area.
