How to Prevent Violence at Apartment Complexes?

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 apartment complexes and commercial properties.

“Apartment complexes can take certain, reasonable steps to help prevent violence on their properties – for example, adequate lighting, controlled-access gates, fences, courtesy officers, security patrols, off-duty officers, and cameras. It is also important for property owners to request prior crime data to get a better idea of what is happening at or near the property. Owners and managers should request for the 9-11 calls for service logs, crime grids, and actual police reports.”
