Located just between San Francisco and Santa Cruz, Cupertino, California is a beautiful location to live. Not only is it a moderately sized community with plenty of fun activities to do, but its also headquarters to the well-liked and highly successful Apple Corporation. With four beautiful state parks, the ocean and San Francisco bay nearby, residents never get tired with all of the exciting outdoor activities that are available to them. Unfortunately though, all of these things that make Cupertino such an exciting place to live also make it more likely to become the target of criminals. So residents need to step up their home security in order to make sure they dont become the victims of a crime. Here are three important reasons residents should make sure they think about the home security measures they have in place.
3. When Cupertino residents go out on the weekend to participate in various outdoor excursions, they leave their houses empty for several hours or days at a time. Many criminals are well aware that this is the case, and nearly all of them are looking to break into houses when the residents arent there. Criminals dont want to engage in any kind of confrontation or wind up going to jail, so they prefer to break into houses when residents are out for the weekend. If you plan to take a weekend trip anywhere or even just get outside for several hours at a time, make sure you have a home security system installed so you can ward of potential break ins. If a criminal knows that you have a system in place, they will nearly always choose to target a different house instead. If they break in anyway, at least you will have a system in place that can respond immediately, which will cause the thieves to run and the police to respond. Without such a system, thieves could spend hours ransacking your property and causing you thousands of dollars worth of damage and loss.
2. Criminals are well aware that the Apple Corporation employees many of Cupertinos residents. Its common knowledge that most of those jobs are well-paying, so employees are better off than many other people, especially with the terrible state of the economy currently. Thieves are always looking for wealthy targets to rob because they want to be able to steal expensive items. So if criminals think that you have items in your home that are worth a lot, theyre more likely to target you than someone else. Keep expensive items out of sight so you dont tempt thieves.
1. The state of California is in one of the worst economic crises in the history of any state. The budget has been cut massively, which means the police have fewer resources and there are more criminals running around freely. So its important that every citizen take their own home security measures in order to protect themselves as best they can since the state may not be able to do so.
