Brandon has a small town feel to it, despite its size. That feeling of being neighbors with everyone who lives in the community can be disarming. Brandon is indeed a nice city, but it has another side to it. Compared to the average for robbery in Florida, Brandon has a much higher robbery rate according to FBI 2015 crime statistics. This means that if you own a home, business or both in the greater Brandon area you are more likely to experience a burglary in your property. There are also other factors that can compound your chances for being burglarized in Brandon. Is your house by itself on the end of a street? Is your home or business in a part of town where more crime occurs? Does your business sell merchandise that is easily hidden in a purse or backpack? Do you keep hours where there are long stretches with no one home? Are the homes next to you unoccupied? If you answered yes to one or more of the previous questions, you may need a surveillance system.
Safewise reports that nine out of ten burglars interviewed for a study say they would not break into a house they knew had security cameras. Most home burglaries occur during the day when no one is home. No cars in the driveway and a well-maintained home, signal to the would-be intruder that it is not a vacated home. Security cameras are the first line of defense as a deterrent. Some surveillance systems allow you to access them via the internet in order monitor your home or business. If a burglar is trying to break in, you can see it and alert the authorities. If you are not monitoring your residence or business yourself at the time the break in occurs, your cameras will record the entire incident. Photographic evidence of crime makes recovery of stolen goods much more likely. A business with security cameras is less likely to have merchandise stolen by shoplifters and experience employee crimes like theft of products and embezzlement.
