Two of the major threats that most security systems protect against are intrusions, usually for burglary, and fires. Businesses from small home operations to large office facilities can benefit from this protection as well, as the advantages are similar in both instances. While many people chose to move to or stay in the suburbs of Philadelphia for safety reasons, statistics show that “it’s not going to happen to me” is not necessarily valid for those who plan on living here for several years.
Whether there are concerns over potential fires that could damage family heirlooms or a history of nearby crime, data shows that tragic events happen more quickly and more often than one might think.
Statistics on Home Emergencies in Bucks County
A recent review of police data in Bucks County indicates that thousands of property crimes are reported each year. For example, only about 4,000 people live in Chalfont but there are several dozen people who are victims of property crimes that may have been avoided with the help of a Holicong security system consultant. Southampton had nearly 400 such crimes, but of course the population is much larger. Doylestown has one of the higher property crime rates in Bucks County, with one in 47 residents likely to be the victim of theft or burglary on an annual basis.
