Crime Index Security Cameras 

Break-ins in Sanford Florida Down?

Last Updated on

Sanford, Florida break ins are high compared to surrounding areas but they’re almost half of what they were just 14 years ago, according to Crime-index.com. This is probably due to better policing strategies and the building Renaissance of the early and middle 2000’s in Sanford which added more upscale homes and gated communities. Unfortunately, the Trayvon Martin case has brought notoriety to the town of about 55,000 people and the only township close by with a higher burglary rate is

Orange City. Areas around 25th Street and gated communities throughout Sanford have witness an uptick in burglaries and car thefts partially due to the housing collapse of 2007-08 which produced more short term renters and vacant houses that can build up and hide long term problems.
Some home owners have become skittish about starting neighborhood watch programs after the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch participant while other residents have become more diligent in making phone calls when unfamiliar cars and persons happen to be in their neighbors driveways or property.

Solutions have materialized with more police tools and patrols by community officers but some home owners have found instant relief by installing visible security cameras around their homes and property.
Tablet Camera ViewStatistics have shown that homes and businesses with visible security cameras are 8 times less likely to experience burglaries and home invasions than properties without security cameras.
Also, camera systems allow home owners to study patterns in their neighborhood that can later be investigated before a serious problem occurs. Would be thieves move on to other homes several doors down or move their home invasions and burglaries to other communities altogether when security cameras, as well as security camera warning stickers and signs, are prevalent.
Some homeowners even like the fact that they can receive alerts through their mobile phones when their cameras pick up suspicious movement around their property.

In communities where security cameras are present for more than 3 months, a substantial decrease in burglaries and break-ins have been reported. Some reports show a 54% decrease in crime altogether in certain areas but it is hard to quantify if these decreases happen around the newly placed security cameras or in the neighborhood that surrounds them.

Crime indexes do not show the overall character of Sanford Florida. Established neighborhoods in Sanford like Cameron, New Upsula, Bel Air, Winwood and a few others are relatively peaceful and resembles more of a sleepy community. For the rest of Sanford with its beautiful lakefront pathway, award winning parks, beautiful homes, historical downtown community events and art shows along with well performing schools, Sanford offers a lot for your money but just like other large communities it is experiencing growing pains that is slowly improving with outreach programs to encourage long term home ownership throughout Sanford as well as better policing strategies.
