Spectrum Driveway Alarm

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:46 pm

Suspicious behaviour is always worth checking out or reporting to the Police, especially in neighbourhood environments. But that is hard to do when you are tucked up in bed in the wee, small hours or when you and your family are relaxing at home. It is at these times when your home might be targetted by burglars. And if you live in a home with a large driveway or garden then securing your premises can be even more difficult. Which is why we here at Crime Prevention Products highly recommend the Spectrum Driveway Alarm.

Crime and the Video Games Debate

Filed under: Opinion — admin @ 1:38 pm

A new study released by Texas University shows that there is no direct correlation between those exposed to violent video games and increasing crime statistics. The author of the study, Christopher Ferguson of Texas A&M International University, exposes that violent video games such as ‘Grand Theft Auto’ and their like, do not desensitise the game player and encourage them to go out and commit criminal behaviour. The study, instead comes to the conclusion that ‘moral panic’ sets in after a violent or horrific crime has taken place and video games are seen as an easy target for politicians, media and parents to blame.

Inauguration Security

Filed under: Security News — admin @ 1:43 pm

On the 20th of January 2009, America will come to a stand still as Barack Obama’s inauguration as the next President of the United States takes place. One thing is for sure, it will be a security nightmare to manage. Normally, an inauguration of a new president is considered a National Special Security Event, which means the Secret Service is in charge of the countries security for that day. However, given the circumstances, as America makes history by electing its first black president, the country will be under the control of the Secret Service for 4 days.
