There are many options to obtain motor vehicle information but this is how I do it! People ask me all the time "how do I run license plates?" or "How do I get DOT information?" Most civilians can not obtain that information without a lengthy legal process. But, private investigators have access to information others don't. In this video, I'll show you my preferred provider. Remember, with great power comes great responsibility...follow the rules or trouble will find you.
I am merely a customer of the service shown in this video, I receive no compensation for referrals or purchases as a result of this video.
Just a quick message to my security colleagues to keep your defenses up while patrolling during the holidays. Oftentimes, we drop our guard when we assume nobody's around. But those who are not celebrating are looking to take advantage of those who are. Stay Safe!
Come along as one of Suburban's Private Detectives takes you on a surveillance investigation!
Who protects the defenseless when the nation's police officers go on strike? The current climate in the law enforcement community is dismal. With the advent of the black lives matter “movement”, police officers must constantly remind themselves why they took this job. Why do we sacrifice so much for people who care so little.
It’s amazing that only fifteen years after 9/11 cops went from heroes to criminals.
The purpose of this concise ebook is to offer a touch of sanity. My intention is not to debate the legitimacy of black lives matter or any other group that claims civil rights violations. I’ll leave that debate to the pundits who love to hear themselves talk. The following is an editorial. It includes theory, opinion and a brief history as seen through the eyes of a full time law enforcement officer. One that is disgusted that many people in society does not recognize how fragile the thin blue line really is.
I felt it necessary to include in the "anti-police" discussion facts that the main stream media will not address. This ebook is in no way advocating that police officers should walk off the job, or even have any legal right to strike. My purpose is to put into perspective the totality of the situation and not only what the mainstream media wants the public to hear.
The night before I started this project I watched the local news where a black woman (and black lives matter protester) stated her fear of the police was keeping her awake at night. She said what concerned her was that she didn’t know whether a family member of hers would be killed tonight at the hands of police. Huh? (yeah, I’ll let that sink in for a minute). Society burdens police with protect strangers for a paltry paycheck and now they need to worry about her feelings? Let me tell you something, I’m gonna sleep just fine at night knowing that her greatest concern in life is not only improbable but highly unlikely. I assure you she has a better chance of getting struck by lightning while running to the store with her winning lottery ticket than a family member being hurt by the police. In fact, the likelihood of her family coming in contact with the police are nil, and most likely that brief interaction is because he held the door for her at Dunkin’ Donuts. We now need to be so Goddamn concerned with your feelings, how about ours? When are our feelings considered? We get spit at, kicked, yelled at everyday for something as simple as writing a parking ticket, and nobody cares. Now, criminals all over the country target with aspirations to kill us.
Even though yesterday's snowstorm was unexpected, Suburban Security was ready. With a snow brush in hand, our security guard went out of the way to give the illusion our customer was home, even though he was 1500 miles away. First, our officer used his patrol vehicle to make tire marks in the driveway and then brushed off the client’s car that was buried in snow. Suburban does its best to discourage theft by throwing potential burglars off their game. “Are they home?" they ask. "I’m not sure…” This is the essence of the Suburban Security philosophy.
This client did not expect to have five inches of snow while he was soaking up the Florida sun, but is now thanking Suburban for not only checking his home but going the extra mile! "It's all in a days work at Suburban Security!"
For as long as I have been a law enforcement officer, Massachusetts has banned several “per se” weapons claiming them to be too dangerous to possess. These weapons include stilettos, dirk knives, brass knuckles and of course electrical weapons (a.k.a: sun guns). Under Mass general law chapter 140 section 131J one could not possess or sell an electric weapon and the penalty could be up to two and a half years in jail. But a recent United Sates Supreme Court decision says the Massachusetts law is unconstitutional! Thus, a law that police have been enforcing for decades is now nullified and police departments across the state are educating their officers to NOT arrest for this crime.
According to a www.thetruthaboutguns.com article posted on March 21, 2016: The case at bar, Jamie Caetano v. Massachusetts involved a defendant — a 4’11” woman residing in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts — who had been given a stun gun by a friend for the purposes of protecting herself against an abusive ex-paramour, who was also the father of her two children. Caetano had allegedly been beaten previously by her ex so severely as to require medical attention.
This Supreme Court decision has dramatic implications in the area of self-protection and self-preservation. This means that one could make the argument that all types of weapons that are currently banned for being a per se weapon could be legalized under this decision. Thus, stilettos, dirk knives and even “brass knuckles” could be argued that they’re possessed for the purpose of protecting themselves.
Depending on where one is on the issue of self-protection, this can either mean that a woman who takes the train late at night in a rough neighborhood can now legally protect herself with a tool that works….Or, the dirtbag, drug dealing, robber can carry that weapon to rob said woman. Either way, protect yourself proactively by hiring a professional security guard! -Suburbanpatrol.com

I recently received an email from a credit card company of whom I do business. I read the email twice and thought, 'would my credit card company really attempt to contact me using email? I don't think so.' Being the suspicious, skeptical person that I am, I called the credit card company using the phone number that is printed on the back of my card. And low and behold, my credit card company doesn't even have my email address on file. Imagine that? The service rep I spoke with said it happens so frequently now that the company doesn't even investigate these claims anymore. So, I thought I would research and share some helpful hints to protect us from becoming victims.
In my case, the email looked unbelievably accurate, with the company logo and even an email address that started with service and ended with the company name and dot com. The one thing that immediately drew my attention was the way some of the sentences were phrased. Everything was spelled correctly but reading the sentence aloud did not sound right (the reason for this I later learned was because the email probably originated out of the U.S. and English is their second language so the author did not phrase the email as an American would. In addition, the email asked me to click this specific, attached link to log into my account. That didn't sound right either. Thus, I wasn't fooled and neither should you. So, here are a couple helpful hints courtesy of the National Association of Federal Credit Unions:
Never respond to an unsolicited email that asks for detailed financial information: (In my case I did not click on the link but if I had I'm sure it would've sent me to a site that asked for my log-in, password, account number, date of birth or other identifying information. I've heard of other incidents where clicking the link took you to a site and asks just your username and password. When you enter it the next screen read something like, "I'm sorry but our system is down, try again later". Then you go about your day not knowing that your username and password were recorded and your account is being cleaned out).
Report anything suspicious to the proper authorities: (If after you believed you were scammed, or your account has been hacked, you should always report it to your local police department. As long as there is a monetary loss, or potential for loss, your police department is obligated to document the information and conduct an investigation. Most local departments are involved with state reporting agencies who track these types of cyber crimes. Even though most of these phishing scams are done across country lines, financial institutions are much more ready to assist you AFTER you've reported it to a law enforcement agency. In addition, you can put a fraud alert on your credit report by contacting all of the major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and Trans Union).
Contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center: This agency is a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center and can be reached at www.ic3.gov.
I hope these tips help and feel free to contact Suburban Security for a free consultation or for more information. Please review the below PDF courtesy of the Internet Crime Complaint Center. Thank You!
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 incandescent light bulb 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.
