How Crime Rates Spike In Summer and What to Do To Prevent Becoming a Victim

South Carolina Summer is Nearly Here!

Summer brings:

  • swimming
  • boating
  • surfing
  • hiking
  • fishing

and an uptick in violent crime.

Yes, you read that right.

In summer months, crime rates go up!

Most of our readers live and work in either Horry County or Georgetown County – just like we, owners at Strand Security, do – and this all makes sense

 

Summer Crime Rates

More Daylight. Warmer Weather. Opportunity for Crime Rises.

While you would think that winter and darkness invite more crime, it’s the exact opposite.

Most home invasions happen between the hours of 10 AM -2 PM anyway!

As people spend more time outdoors, they are exposed to more people and thus crime rates can go up, especially in places where petty theft opportunities start (beach, boat docks, outdoor restaurants, tourist shopping strips etc.)

As far a summer crime spikes, here are the three most common reasons!

1

When looking at when violence was significantly higher, it turns out that during the summer crimes rates spike, compared to winter, spring and fall seasons.

Unfortunately, that includes crimes like rape and sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault. Among adults, simple assault is also more common in summer than in other months.

How to prevent this from happening to you?

  • Go out in groups
  • Have a plan, know where you are headed!
  • Be aware of where you go and where you park
  • Don’t wear expensive watches or jewelry, or flaunt them if your do
  • Don’t bring wallets or purses to the beach and leave them unattended
  • Share your location with friends and family when going on vacation
  • While running or walking, don’t wear earbuds or headphones

You can not prevent all crime, but you can be vigilant about preventing crime. Most criminals go for unsuspecting victims and look for opportunities: they are not looking to confront hyper-aware people!

2

As the summer season heats up, so do property crimes. More tourists on the Grand Strand means more vehicles, more people and more possessions! Household burglary rates go up in summer as more vacation homes are now occupied!

Burglary is 11% more common in the summer than in the winter and for our area in South Carolina that makes total sense. Homes that are empty in winter, now have people with electronic equipment, computers, expensive phones, bikes, boats and surf boards, just to name some property that is easily stolen!

If you are vacationing on the Grand Strand, or have ‘toys’ like boats, bikes and surfboards, make sure to lock them up when you are not around! Crime of opportunity is always there, but with extended daylight hours, there is more time for criminals to steal!

3

Next, let’s address beach crime. With over 60 miles of beachfront on the Grand Strand, beach crime rates increase drastically in summer months, as more people come to Myrtle Beach to vacation. While it’s tempting to bring ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ to the beach, especially if you have a large family, let us recommend you leave valuables at home, or in a safe at your vacation rental!

Beach crimes are an equal opportunity crime! No matter who you are, if you leave your things on the beach unattended you run the risk of getting your things stolen. Chairs, shoes but also surf boards, wallets, purses and phones!

TO be safe, always leave someone at your beach station to watch over your things, or leave all valuables behind. Don’t assume that those around you will speak up when someone will try to walk off with your property. Most beach-goers don’t and won’t as they might not see it, or not know whether to intervene, or not.

Preventing petty beach crime is as easy as not bringing anything of value with you for a day of fun!

4

As mentioned in #2, the nicer weather brings us outside with our outdoor toys. Boats, surf boards but also motercycles, bicycles, basketball hoops, eBikes, sports equipment, tools and surround sound home systems. Yes, your nice new Sonos speaker could be stolen as well.

The first line of defense is a home security system with both indoor and outdoor cameras, the second line of defense is locking thing up when not in use! We know this is easier said than done because… kids! Right? We know kids leave bikes out, toys out and forget to put them back inside.

A home security system, a security sign, visible security cameras – these deterrents all help prevent crime of opportunity!

Don’t become a Summer Crime Statistic!

Prevention, prevention, prevention.

Now that you’ve read this blog, be aware. Share with your family. Make a plan. We encourage you to have fun, but also choose your activities wisely and always lock up expensive toys and sports equipment as well as all your tech!

If you need help, give us a call! Stay safe and have a wonderful summer.

How To Get Ready for 2022 With Our Best Home Security Tips

2022 Is Almost Here! How Will You Protect and Secure Those You Love?

In just a few weeks, the calendar will turn to 2022.

Are you ready?

Protecting the ones you love should be your number one priority, followed by protecting your hard-earned possession. Strand Security partners with individuals, families and businesses to do just that!

Your security is our business!

As we close out 2021 with Strand Strand Security’ s last blog article in 2021, let’s look ahead to how you can get ready for the most amazing year (2022!) with our Best Home Security Tips!

ready for 2022 best home security tips

Activate Your Alarm System – When You Leave and When You Arrive!

Why not use it if you got it?

We continue to be surprised to find that the majority of home security system owners only activate their alarms when they are not home! Right, we mean that people will arm the system and set it to ‘away’ when they leave, but fail to arm the system when they are home.

Wait?! Yep!

TIP: You should use the system when you are home! Really!!! Protect yourself and those you love against a home invasion, possible burglary or worse.

You got? Use it!

Keep Your Yard Trimmed and Cleaned Up

You want to tell the world you care about your property. Tell them you care enough to landscape, trim hedges and bushes and you are aware of changes happening in your yard.

This signals to a potential burglar on a stakeout to skip your home! They do not want to meet a homeowner – burglars want to enter your home undetected and want to leave before anyone notices they are there. Install Motion-Detecting Flood Lights Around Your Home and Office

Lights deter. But leaving lights on all night is not a great option. While you could use timers to turn lights on and off, why not use motion-detecting lights to flood the doorways, windows and parking lots when people approach your building!

Crime can happen during the day. However, the cover of darkness makes sneaking in and out of a building much easier. Don’t make it easy for a criminal. use light to deter them.

Test your System Periodically

We at Strand Security help our customers test their systems. We want to make sure that during an emergency situation – home fire, carbon monoxide, medical emergency, hurricane, flood etc – your system will alert the proper authorities!

Testing should be part of your standard maintenance list done on your home!

Upgrade Your Security Cameras

The newest, latest security camera technology is amazing. No more grainy pictures, no more guessing who is trying to break in. Clear images and wireless options, wired or wireless, there are many options and each year they get better and better with advanced technology. If you’ve not updated your cameras in a long time, come talk to us.

We’d be happy to give you a quote to upgrade your current system!

Keep an Eye On Crime Stats in Your Neighborhood

Last but not least, keep an eye on the crime stats for your neighborhood, your town, your county. Not all crimes make the paper or the news, but there are places you ca find real data on crime.

We don’t recommend you get obsessed with numbers, but a forewarned person can action to prevent certain crimes from happening. Why not be prepared?

If crime in your area is in on the rise, read this.

Strand Security: Serving Horry County and Georgetown County

We are here when you need us, but we prefer to help you before you really need us aka you’ve been a victim of crime! 😉

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from all of us at Strand Security. May your 2022 be filled with joy, happiness and and may you always feel safe and protected!

What if a Panic Button Could Save Your Life or That of a Loved One?

Panic Buttons Are Not Just for Seniors!

Who doesn’t remember the “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” commercial? Did you know these LifeCall commercials started running on TV in 1987?

Be honest, when we say ‘panic button’ is that the image you have? This ‘panic button’ for LIfeCall was for a medical alert system.

This same concept of ‘instant alert’ is now affordable and available to anyone, anywhere and anytime, for both personal and commercial use. Let’s look at some user stories of panic buttons and how they are NOT just for senior citizens!

panic button can save lives

Hospital Staff and Panic Buttons!

After a rise in aggressive patient behavior during the Covid pandemic, a Missouri hospital took seemingly drastic steps to keep their staff safe and secure by providing panic buttons!

From the video:

After an increasing number of patients became violent at Cox Medical Center in Missouri staff members were given personal panic buttons. The buttons use a GPS tracking system so security can locate employees when they are in trouble.

Banks and Panic Buttons!

You’ve seen this in movies, for sure, but did you know panic buttons at banks are standard?

This is how panic buttons at banks work:

Banks can hide a silent-alarm button on the side of a desk, under the teller counter or inside a safe. Some companies offer emergency buttons disguised as a key fob or a pendant. As soon as an employee flips the switch, it triggers the control panel at the alarm company. Some companies let the bank designate special buttons for particular emergencies. One button can be set to tell the company to send for paramedics rather than police, for example.

Gas Station and Panic Buttons!

In this article about gas station safety, panic buttons are mentioned as a ‘must-have’ safety net. Often, gas station attendants work alone. Personal safety is important when a co-worker is not available as a back up.

  • Make sure the panic button is within reach. There should be a panic button installed at the clerk counter in case of an emergency, such as theft or gunfire. Make sure that you know exactly where it is and that you can access it easily.

Heather’s Armed Robbery Story

Heather of Strand Security knew the importance of panic buttons. Her husband had his own security company and she’s begged her boss (at a retail store) to install panic buttons.

He did not.

Read Heather’s story of survival when she was robbed at gunpoint. She credits a high school self-defense class as helping her survive. She also knows that if she’d had a panic button to push, she might not have had to fight for her life!

Panic Buttons at Home. They Can Save Your Life or That of a Loved One

If you have already have a security system in place, and have 24/7 monitoring of your system, adding panic buttons is an easy way to add another layer of security!

Place the panic button in your bathroom or bedroom, basement or any place you want. Ask us and we ca help you chose the best spots!

We can also supply you with a portable, wearable panic button. NOTE: These will only work when your system is enabled, of course. Another reason to always arm your system!

Call us to start a conversation about panic buttons!

3 Tips to Keep Your Staff and Customers Safe in the Parking Lot

Myrtle Beach Crime on Businesses

The crime rate in Myrtle Beach, the Grand Strand, Horry County and Georgetown County is high. Business owners on the Grand Strand and in the Myrtle Beach area need to stay vigilant to keep their staff and customers safe from harm.

Crime on businesses include

During some of these incidents, the safety of staff and customers was in jeopardy.

What is a business owner to do?

We have 3 tips to share with you today. Tips that will simultaneously deter criminals and will give your staff and customers peace of mind.

Parking Lot Safety 101

First, let’s go over some basic parking lot safety tips for those who park their cars.

  1. Do not talk on the phone while walking through a parking lot. Instead, stay alert.
  2. Do get out your keys before you approach your car and be ready to enter your car.
  3. Do not sit in your car in the parking lot. Instead, start your car and drive away.
  4. If the parking lot is empty when you enter it, park underneath security lights.
  5. If you are approached in a parking lot, immediately return to the building and ask for an escort to your car.
  6. Always lock your car.
  7. Be aware of your surroundings.
  8. Don’t park next to a large van or truck.
  9. If you feel unsafe, return to the building.
  10. If you notice loitering, report it to management.

 

parking lot safety tips

1) Commercial Security System with Cameras Keep Staff and Customer Safe

The first and best tip we have for you to keep your staff as well as your customers safe it to hire a security company to install a complete commercial security system.

A professionally installed system will allow you to keep tabs on inventory, customers and staff as they work for you.

Such a system would include security cameras and a mobile app integration, as well as smart technology to keep all the part working together to allow you to monitor from afar.

Having video recording of a possible crime will help speed up the stolen product recovery process. Cameras as well as security signs with a “monitored by XYZ Security Company” help to deter criminals from even approaching your business!

outdoor commercial security camera

2) Add Security Lights in Strategic Spots in the Parking Lot

Not all security systems include lighting: we highly recommend installing security light systems in your parking lot. Some of the lights should include sensor flood lights that are activated as criminals approach the building.

Other lights should provide ample light for customers and staff to feel safe enough to walk to their car in the dark.

security flood lights

3) Offer Self Defense Classes for All Your Employees

Last but not least, we give you one more tip to keep your staff and customers safe in the parking lot.

Organize a self-defense class for your staff. This can be a powerful way to make your staff feel more secure, more confident and more self-assured when working late at night or alone. Self-defense classes are a great team building activity!

10 Reasons To Love Summer in South Carolina

we love summer in south carolina

The last day of August is here as this is published, yet summer ins’t over yet in South Carolina! Not by a loooong shot!

As Myrtle Beach area children might be back in school or being homeschooled, yet tourists are still flocking to the beaches of the Grand Strand and will continue to do so long into the fall!

We at Strand Security are grateful for yet another year in Murrells Inlet as we celebrate 10 years in business in 2020!

This is the 8th article in a series of 12 articles about all the things we love about our state, our town, our business and our community in South Carolina.

10 Years and 10 Reasons

In case you missed it here are the other articles in this series!

10 Reasons to Love Quality Speakers
10 Reasons to Love Security Camera
10 Reasons to Love Living in South Carolina
10 Reasons to Love a Home Theater
10 Reasons to Love our Community
10 Reasons to Love Smarthomes
10 Reasons to Love the Grand Strand

What We Love About Summer In South Carolina!

  1. In South Carolina, we loves our beaches in the summer! As the air heats up, the beaches and the ocean keeps us cool! Many tourists come to the South Carolina shores for its beautiful and plentiful beaches.
  2. Water Sports! We loves water sports in summer. Sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing, boating, waterskiing, swimming… you name it and you can do it! With beautiful weather, many sunny days and perfect conditions, South Carolina is a haven for those who love water sports.
  3. Did we mention the sun and our gorgeous weather yet? We love South Carolina summers because its’ always summer! No need for a jacket, no chill in the air! Sun, wind and warmth. Yes, some humidity too, but most South Carolinians will take that as that’s all we know!
  4. Outdoor Sports! While we can play outdoor sports just about year-round in Myrtle Beach and beyond, we love being able to be outdoors and walk, hike, run, bike and play all sorts of outdoor sports in summer months.
  5. Porches are the best. South Carolinians sleep on porches, visit on porches and in general, live and eat on porches, too! If you are thinking about moving to South Carolina, make sure to add ‘porch’ to your wishlist when looking for a new home. having a porch and a ceiling fan… the best!
  6. No porch is complete without a gallon of Sweet Tea! Any thirsty local knows that sweet tea is the best for when it’s hot outside and you need a cool down drink!
  7. With average temperatures well into the 80s and 90s all summer long, outdoor dining on porches and decks once the sun goes down is the prefect ending to any South Carolina summer day.
  8. The South Carolina rivers offer many great adventures. Wild water tubing, kayaking, rafting, fishing… you name it and you can find it! River adventures are another reason we love South Carolina summers.
  9. Have you ever visited a Walmart or grocery store in South Carolina. Flip-flops and shorts are the uniform of choice when the weather is hot! We love our relaxed dress code.
  10. Last but not least, combining long, hot days, water adventures, the beach, sweet tea, outdoor dining and more and your get… slower paced and lazy days which is another thing we love about South Carolina summers!
