Get your FREE Home Security Survey from the North Myrtle Beach Police
The City of North Myrtle Beach Police Department conducts a FREE Home Security Survey for their community members. A Home Security Survey takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete, in the presence of the home owner.
After the Home Security Survey is complete, the homeowners receive all paperwork. The Police do not keep any paperwork on file.
A Home Security Survey is a critical onsite examination of a property to determine what the present security status is, identify any deficiencies or excesses of security, determine what level of protection is needed, and make recommendations to improve the overall security of the premises.
About local burglaries…
Most burglaries in North Myrtle Beach are committed by low- to medium-skilled burglars. They use such tools as rocks, screwdrivers, channel lock pliers, etc. to gain entry. Their targets are often selected at random, based on their perceived opportunity to successfully commit the crime. Due to the inadequate security of many premises, these relatively unskilled people can gain entry in 4 to 45 seconds.
The Home Security Survey is designed to help you understand how to improve the security of your home. All of the suggestions are relatively simple and do not cost a great deal to implement. While there are no foolproof methods for preventing burglaries, the tips in a Home Security Survey can make your home more crime resistant.
