What Can An Apartment Complex Do to Improve Security And Prevent Crime?
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.
“There are a number of things an apartment complex or commercial property can do to help deter crime. For example, property owners can install a controlled-access gate, maintain adequate lighting, install and monitor security cameras, hire security for patrols, hire a courtesy officer, or hire an off-duty officer to walk the property. Apartment complexes should also warn their residents of prior crimes on the property. Securing a property requires a holistic approach. Very rarely does it come down to one, particular security measure. Rather, it’s a combination of security measures that contribute to safety in a meaningful way.”
