Violent crime is a sad reality in America. If you watch the news, you know it happens daily at work, nightclubs, homes and church.
Regardless of the cause, guns, mental health, drugs, domestic or other, it can happen anytime, anywhere. Denial of this will not prevent if from happening, but rather make you a potential victim.
Real Estate investors nature is to look for an opportunity to make money. They may consider rough properties in crime ridden neighborhoods and may not realize the potential danger to violent crime they or their representatives might encounter.
James Holman with 540 Tactical works with property owners and professionals to provide training on what they can do to keep themself and their tenants safe.
Violent crime prevention is key to making your property an unattractive option to crime. The following are some basic proven steps that will encourage criminals to look elsewhere when plotting a crime:
Awareness is the best tool available to avoid violent crime, and you can take with you everywhere. In a survey of over 1000 criminals, the number one thing they look for is an unaware person. If a criminal thinks you are aware of what is going on, they will move on to another potential victim.
Be intentionally aware of your surroundings. Put down your phone, take out your earphones and be aware of your surroundings. 540 Tactical gets it name from 540 degrees of awareness: in front, to the sides, behind and above you is what James recommends. This simple habit can keep you from being a victim of a crime.
Don’t wait until something happens to you, have a conversation and train your staff to keep everyone safe.
