New York City has been described as the greatest city in the world. We fully believe this is true at Fortress Global! Unfortunately, in any city of this size and scope, there are some ugly realities that are bound to rear their heads from time to time. Let’s break down some statistics about the Big Apple and the advantages of access control systems in New York.
The NYPD does a great job of releasing monthly crime reports. We will be taking a look at the January 2020 report. There are two general takeaways, one good and one bad. Murder and hate crimes decreased by -20.7% and -24% respectively when compared to the same timeframe in 2019. However, burglary, assault, and grand larceny all saw increases. Burglary and assault, in New York City, in particular, are often crimes of opportunity. This means that the criminal did not plan on committing a crime, but saw an opening and took it.
A major factor in criminals deciding if they will commit this type of offense is ease. This is where an Access Control system comes into play. If an offender realizes that there are roadblocks that make their potential crime more complex, they are likely to give up altogether. As these criminals did not premeditate and have no emotional motivation, they are much easier to deter. However, even if they do decide to proceed, a Fortress Global access control system New York is often enough to thwart their attempts. To increase the security of your home or business further, you can also combine access control with Fortress Global surveillance measures such as CCTV cameras and intercoms.
