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

Legal contributor Attorney Brian Mickelsen, 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 carjackings, shootings, and assaults at gas stations throughout the country.”

Mickelsen adds, “Gas stations should install quality exterior and interior cameras, regularly monitor cameras, remove loiters on the property, maintain a criminal trespass list, and where necessary, hire an off-duty office to patrol the premises.”
