Crime Prevention More Important Than Ever Before

The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to keep people safe buy reducing crime in communities. Remember "McGruff" the crime dog? That is the NCPC. Not long ago NCPC published a report titled "Crime Prevention Matters". After reading this report I've noted the following points:
  • National surveys show that the American people think that crime is a serious problem and that crime is worse today than it was last year.
  • Foreclosures are at all time highs and there is a direct correlation between higer rates of foreclosures and violent crime.
  • Consumer confidence is low and as people lose confidence, crimes like robbery and property crimes rise.
  • An estimated 650,000 prisoners will be returning to communities each year.
  • It is more important than ever to take your personal and home security seriously. A great start is our security survey.
