What can business owners do to protect their customers from increasing violence at gas stations and convenience stores?

Legal contributor, Attorney Danny Dalton, an experienced crime victim lawyer, represents crime victims and gunshot victims injured or killed in shootings, stabbings, and assaults at commercial and residential properties.

“Gas stations are increasingly becoming danger zones – hots spots for violent crime. There appears to be an increase in reported car jackings, shootings, and assaults at gas stations throughout the country. As our law firm has investigated these incidents, we have found that gas stations in smaller cities and rural areas are often gathering places for people in the area. These gatherings then turn into loitering, often drinking or drug abuse follow, and if left alone, the gatherings then turn violent.”

Dalton adds, “Owners can, and should, take steps to prevent and stop the crime from escalating at their gas stations. They should install quality exterior and interior cameras, regularly monitor those cameras, remove loiters on the property, maintain a criminal trespass list, and if necessary, hire an off-duty officer to patrol the premises.”
