In today’s world, everyone needs to be extra vigilant about safety. The days of taking a stroll at night or leaving your house unlocked are basically over. Security is a top priority for most people, and security companies make billions of dollars a year selling safety and security devices to consumers. But there is only so much you can do to keep yourself safe. At some point, you have to trust that certain environments you are in will do their part to ensure your safety as well. For example, when you are at work, you expect your place business to have adequate safety features to protect everyone working there. In your apartment/condo, you expect the same. These are supposed to be — for the most part — your safe havens. Any breach of security or safety can be cause for alarm or concern, and rightfully so.

Examples of Security Negligence
- Insufficient Lighting – If an establishment does not have sufficient lighting, this could be a security concern. Anything can happen in the dark. You could trip and hurt yourself, be attacked, robbed, or worse.
- Faulty Security Cameras – Knowing there are cameras on a facility can make someone feel more at ease. Cameras most likely mean there is someone monitoring what is going on. But if the cameras are faulty or not working, the can also be a cause for concern.
- Lack of Security Presence – When you go the mall you see mall cops everywhere. Just seeing someone official puts you more at ease. The same goes with a guard gate at an apartment complex or condo. Seeing a security presence deters vandals, thieves, and other miscreants. Just knowing there is someone there to help can make a big difference.
