Assignment 2: Safety, Security, and the Future
As noted previously, the general residential property criminal offense rate, which includes burglary, increased by 10% in 2010 and 2011 (U.S. Department of Justice, 2012). It is generally assumed that property crimes are not “violent”—at least in the same way as a murder, rape, or assault; however, to many victims, property crimes are as mentally traumatic as any physical assault. Often, property crimes leave even more scars.
The trauma caused by the damage or loss is not visible to others and, therefore, is often ignored or trivialized by those responding or assisting. This adds to the pain of the victim. Sometimes, the victims of property crimes are reluctant to tell others about their anguish over the loss of valuables—not necessarily valuable for monetary reasons, but often irreplaceable due to emotional and personal reasons.

By the due date assigned, in at least 250 words, post to the Discussion Area your answers to the following questions:
With the higher levels of property crime in residential areas, more residential associations have employed private security or off duty officers to protect their property. Do you believe that this trend is positive to address crime or is it a sign of law enforcement not fulfilling its role that the citizens are paying for?
Use both the textbook and reputable outside resources from the Internet and Argosy University online library resources to locate the laws, statutes, and cases.
