ARLINGTON, VA (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
In 2012, nearly nine million property crimes occurred in the United States alone. The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) marks each October as National Crime Prevention Month to remind communities to focus on safe behaviors and educate them on proactive crime prevention. To ensure security is always top of mind, ADT and experts at the NCPC are offering home safety tips.
“Daily security measures for some don’t go much further than locking doors,” said Ann M. Harkins, President and CEO of the National Crime Prevention Council. “Since 1984, we’ve used National Crime Prevention Month to create a movement where communities work together to encourage safe behaviors, and urge families to take their home safety seriously.”
