Crime Rises with Temperature

June 18, 2009 at 11:39 am Leave a comment

Marietta, Georgia, has traditionally seen a rise in crime as the weather gets warmer, and they are gearing for an increase now as we head into the summer. According to a local media source, the police department attributes the rise to an increase in juveniles on the street during summer break and more absent houses as people leave on vacation.

But this increase is not limited to Marietta, many agencies across the US and Canada realize that crime increases when the weather gets warm. For the average citizen, this means making sure that you are vigilant about your personal and property safety during the summer months.

If you plan on heading off to exotic locations, make sure that you take measures to protect your home while you are away: lack all doors and windows and make sure you have a neighbor, family member, or friend check on your property periodically to make sure nothing is amiss. As well, you can stop mail service or have someone pick up your mail so that your house does not appear vacant. In addition, stay informed about crime in your neighborhood while you are away by checking CrimeReports.com.
