21 Jul Understanding Local Crime
The managing of security risks is essential to maintaining a person’s sense of peace and safety. Understanding local crime is essential for business owners, apartment managers, and facility operators in helping to avoid lawsuits. Property owners who are sued by an employee, tenant or guest for “negligent security” often find out that local crime elements are the basis for such laws
Often the first thing the plaintiff’s attorney does is to obtain local crime data for the site where the alleged incident occurred to determine if the crime was “foreseeable,” and if so, whether “reasonable care” taken on the part of the property owner to prevent the crime from occurring. Failure to understand local crime results in the inability to design effective security programs that promote safety, reduced liability, and protection. Aside from legal liability considerations, there are many practical reasons that local crime conditions may impact you. Developing a network and community relations program is key for gathering criminal intelligence. Therefore, direct sources of information from people residing or working in your area is best.
