1701Re: More "security" checks
- Jul 6, 2007Anything can be an opportunity for criminal perps. The confidence level
is naturally, "high" for security people and systems alike. Everything
and everyone close to one's home, business and loved ones deserves
special scrutiny. Here's a cautionary excerpt from an article on home
A Cat Burglar's Guide to Protecting Your Home
reprinted from Bottom Line/Personal,
September 1, 2003
I have spent most of my career stealing from people just like you. I was
a member of the "Dinner Set" burglary ring for a dozen years. We stole
about $70 million in jewelry -- for which I spent 11 years in prison. No
one is better qualified to tell you that most people don't do enough to
protect their homes...
Mistake #2: Posting detailed alarm signs. Don't display signs that
identify the alarm company. Burglars can buy information on how the
systems are wired -- and how to bypass specific versions.
Better: Buy signs at home-supply stores that read, This house is
protected by an alarm system. As long as it doesn't give specific
information, it can be a good deterrent.
