If you read the comments in this Patriot Ledger story, you’ll see that many people want to lay the blame for apparently rising crime rates in Quincy on residents of Scituate. Is that reaction warranted? It’s a common human trait when something bad happens – whether it’s a car jacking, home invasion, or burglary – to try to find someone to blame. It’s better if those someones we identify as bad people live far away. After all, no one wants to live next door to a criminal.
But the truth is we never know. The factors that drive someone to engage in criminal behavior – economic pressures, drug addiction, poor morals – know no boundaries. It doesn’t matter what zip code you live in, or next to: you can be the target of criminal activity. It’s essential that you take the steps necessary to protect your family, your home, your car, and your business. At the end of the day, does it matter if you’ve been broken into by a person from Scituate or Quincy – or would you rather have the Quincy home security that keeps your home from being broken into at all?
We talked to your Quincy locksmith about steps you can take to keep your home, car, and business safer. The first step you have to take is to raise your awareness of basic security. As much as we might like to think so, we’re not living in the good old days where everyone could leave their doors unlocked. Today, it’s essential to lock your car. All entrances, including doors, windows, and service entrances to your business must lock securely. Quincy home security begins by having strong locks installed on all doors, windows, and entrances to your home.
Why are strong locks so important? Thieves look for opportunity. Easy access to a home or business via an unlocked door or window makes the criminal’s job easier. They can get in faster, take what they want, and get out in a hurry. If you don’t have strong locks in your Quincy home or business, talk to your Quincy locksmith. Installing a home locking system, or business security system for your Quincy business, can help protect your family, your livelihood, and your assets from criminals – no matter what neighborhood they call home!
