The Athens-Clarke County Police Department is seeking to provide the citizens of Athens-Clarke County with information regarding low- to moderate-cost burglary prevention devices and tools. These devices are designed to lessen the probability of you being a victim of a burglary without evidence to capture and convict the perpetrator(s). These devices use key crime prevention and target hardening principals of light, time, noise, and surveillance:
Light: Using light to increase the detection of a burglar
Noise: Creating a disturbance that burglars would like to avoid and would alert neighbors of the burglar’s presence
Surveillance: Installing camera systems to alert residents to an intrusion and to save valuable evidence of the identity of the perpetrator(s)
Time: Installing hardware which makes it more time consuming to break into a home or apartment
