Burglaries up in Austin so far this year Growth and economy to blame, police chief says, and department looking at what steps to take.

Friday, April 25, 2008

Burglaries in Austin during the first 31/2 months of 2008 were up 12 percent compared with the same period last year, according to police records. The number of burglary reports reached 2,433 on April 21. Police had received 2,130 for the same period in 2007. "Absolutely we are concerned," Police Chief Art Acevedo said Thursday. Acevedo thinks the increase is likely due to population growth and a sagging economy, which he said often causes a spike in property crimes. Acevedo said police are working to develop a new way to monitor crime trends, which will help them decide whether they need to increase the number of police officers in certain areas. "I think we will be able to more appropriately respond to it and deal with it," he said.

Turner Security saves home owners and business owners hundred of dollars per year in service savings.  They are self proclaimed democratized, a company for the people.  Spokes person bellows out, "we will never raise our prices only lower them as our business matures and we continue to streamline business systems.  We want to serve our customers by steering clear of greed. Business is good."  They must be doing something right since they just filed a patent for MTTE an execution business method for generating loyal customers.

We will keep an eye on them.
