Austin, Texas (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
National Crime Prevention Month is intended to help citizens recognize and prevent crime in their communities. Throughout the month, government agencies and civic organizations will help educate the public while drawing attention to improvements in crime prevention. The ultimate goal of National Crime Prevention Month is to positively effect change at one of three levels: family, neighborhood, and community.
Protect America has long supported National Crime Prevention Month but the company is increasing its efforts to raise crime prevention awareness. While the larger crime rate has dropped nationally, reported instances of burglary have increased over the past year, according to statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Burglary was the only category of crime that increased during 2011, the FBI reports.
“Protect America is proud to participate in National Crime Prevention Month and offer support to neighborhood crime prevention programs,” said Arlin Owsley, a vice president at Protect America. “We hope that people will use this month to get to know their neighbors and make significant improvements to their overall safety and quality of life. What homeowner doesn’t want a safer neighborhood?”
Throughout October, Protect America is dedicating a portion of sales to support neighborhood watch programs and community-based organizations that provide on-going assistance to crime prevention efforts.
Protect America also offers families a free GE wireless home security system and discounted monitoring rates during National Crime Prevention Month.
