With the summer fast approaching we're reminded of the school breaks we had growing up. Trips to the community pool, games of stick ball in the park and cook-outs with family. Ahh, how simple life was back then. But we're also reminded of those summer breakers who have nothing better to do with their time than cause mischief and headaches for the "elders". Just to be clear, I was not one of these juveniles (no matter what my mom says! Happy Mother's Day mom!)
Some of these mischief makers find it fun to express their artistic side by spay painting your wall with some nonsense. These mini Van Gogh's cause hundreds even thousands of dollars of damage for each incident. So, as a property owner how do you protect your property? There's two proven ways to accomplish this: First, hire Suburban Patrol to conduct random physical security patrols of your property to detect and deter trespassers and give the illusion of constant supervision of the property. For a flat daily rate Security Officers will patrol your property on foot and vehicle, find trouble-seeking youth and advise them they need to relocate themselves. Most youths are not really looking for trouble and just need to be reminded that your property is not a hang out! In addition, Officers will observe and identify those man made issues that require immediate attention.
The second way to prevent trespassers is to install motion activated lighting around the property. These don't have to be ultra expensive and you do not need an electrician to install them. New, condensed units can be found at your local hardware store and installed into any incondescent lightbulb socket. You can even purchase ones that illuminate when the sun goes down. Most "taggers" require the cover of darkness to commit their crime, so take that element away! And always, call Suburban for a free consultation and home security evaluation.
