Security surveys are done by appointment only. During this process, a home or business is inspected for deficiencies in security.
Approximately one week after the initial inspection, a report is given to the business or home owner.
This report outlines ways in which the owner can increase safety and security and, thereby, reducing the risk of burglaries.
