Vital Records Search

Published by Crystal on May 17th, 2012 - in Commercial Security

Vital records are those documents that provide an important milestone or event in each of our lives. These records include legal certificates of your birth, marriage, death, and court documents of any divorces. Each of these vital records provides not only documentation of the event, but they are equally important in other ways after the event.
People search for vital records for many reasons, including but certainly not limited to:
•    Verifying family history (genealogy)
•    Locating an individual
•    Background checks on individuals
•    Providing proof of a death for insurance purposes
•    Obtaining a driver’s license

Where to Begin Your Search for Vital Records?

Searching for vital records can be a challenge. The good news is that if you know the state and county in which the event took place, you can contact that government agency, such as a county courthouse, registrar, or state office of vital statistics, and request access to these documents. Usually there is a small fee and forms to complete for the request. The bad news is that if you do not know the state or county, your search could take longer.

State-Specific Searches Available Online
In our current digital age with databases connected through a worldwide network of computers, you can still obtain vital records with diligent research and by using the right resources.
State and county agencies can be contacted via the internet where you can make your request. A good place to start looking for the proper state vital records agency is by using the state-by-state resource provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site.  Here you can click on the state you need and find specific offices for each vital record.

Other Online Resources
However, where do you go if you only have a name and not a clue where the vital event took place? There are many companies that provide a valuable service by searching for vital records. One resource is vitalchek, which is a company owned by LexisNexis, the world’s leading research organization. VitalChek offers you an easy, step-by-step process to order your vital record. At the end of your order, you simply pay the required agency fee, plus a single VitalChek order fee, and your document will be on the way.

Another online resource for all vital records is Archives. This resource is helpful for family searches and genealogy, and it has over 1 billion records accessible. In addition, you can browse collections of records, network with other family history buffs, and get expert vital record search advice. Archives does charge a reasonable subscription to access their records, but they also offer a free 7-day trial where you can try searching their databases with no payment obligation.
Your vital records search, whether it is for yourself, a family member, or other individual, begins at your fingertips. Using these online resources can save you time, stress, and money, and get you the records or information you need.

Published by Crystal on March 22nd, 2012 - in Commercial Security

SavIsa Security has found a very useful website that maps crime statistics not only within Detroit but the surrounding suburbs of Detroit, Michigan known as the Tri-County area and the entire United States of America.  This website is truly awesome and even includes  tools that enable you to change date ranges, crime types, and even  street level views that zoom into satellite imagery.

Each crime type you click on has detailed information about that particular crime.  The only down side that was found is that certain communities are not listed, not sure why.

Amendment II:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of
a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,
shall not be infringed.

As long as you meet the criteria of ACT 381 of 2000 a CPL cannot be denied. You have the Right to Bear and Keep Arms as provided by the The United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, Second Amendment. (pdf page 12)


Know Your Rights
In 2000, the legislature significantly amended
Michigan’s firearms laws to make Michigan what
is known as a “shall issue” state. Public Act 381
generally provides that a person who meets certain
requirements will be issued a concealed pistol permit.
As a result, thousands of responsible Michigan
residents have been issued concealed pistol permits.
The principal requirements are:

1. The applicant is 21 years of age.

2. The applicant has resided in Michigan for at least
6 months.

3. The applicant is a citizen or legal resident of the
United States.

4. The applicant has successfully taken a gun safety

5. The applicant is not under certain court orders,
such as those involving mental disabilities,
personal protection orders, legal incapacitation,

6. The applicant does not have a pending felony
charge and has never been convicted of a felony
or certain misdemeanors within a specified time

7. The applicant has not been involuntarily
committed due to a mental illness, adjudged
insane, guilty but mentally ill or pled insanity in
a criminal case.

8. The applicant does not have a diagnosed mental
illness at the time of the application.

9. The applicant has not been dishonorably
discharged from the US military.

10. The applicant is not subject to a court order
prohibiting the possession of a firearm.

* The qualifying course needs to be certified by
the State or a state-national firearms training
organization. Courses certified by the National Rifle
Association satisfy this requirement.

Detroit Police Departments Verified Alarm Response has Started

Verified Alarm Response

As of August 22th, 2011 the new program that was short in development and quickly put into place has officially started. After being delayed from  on August 15th, 2011 (one week after the original date that it was supposed to take place).  See Document

As detailed in the document there was little time for the many Alarm Companies that service the Metro Detroit vast area a chance to provide their customers with alternatives.  The brief delay (one week) was in-part an attempt to provide Alarm Companies a chance to brain storm alternatives.  The short delay provided  commercial business owners an opportunity for them to draw straws to see who gets to verify alarm calls, as well giving residents with alarm systems the opportunity to buy antacid tablets as they worry about their safety.

“The verified alarm response is new policy of not responding to burglar alarms unless security companies can verify the need for an officer. However, officers will be sent to a building where an alarm wasn’t verified if it is a government building or part of the city’s critical infrastructure, a panic alarm, robbery/hold up alarm, an alarm at a firearms dealer or at an Underwriters Laboratories site, police said.”  Detroit police’s scaled down alarm response strategy begins today.

The new Verified Alarm Response policy has many left  in the dark and skeptical of why exactly they are paying taxes if they can’t count on the Detroit Police to response for their alarms.

There are alternatives to having the Detroit Police responding to alarms.  SavIsa Security has been providing alarm response to commercial and residential customers for over 20+ years, with over 44 years in the Security and Investigative Businesses for Investigations  click here for their website.   However the calls have been pouring in and their development is quick to undertake the task as the new alarm response division for the over tasked Detroit Police Department.

SavIsa Security has an established patrol network through out the Metro Detroit area and is equipped with skilled and experienced Alarm Response / Patrol Drivers with similar technology that each Detroit Police Department cruiser has.Alarm Response BCI Security Patrol cruiser InteriorBCI Security Patrol cruiser

The cost of their service is relatively low considering the alternative, SavIsa Security requires a monthly retainer of $25.00 first month waived when using a credit card to sign-up with a one year agreement and $35.00 per alarm dispatch. Don’t be fooled by imitations, with SavIsa Security you get exactly what you sign up for (Guaranteed Alarm Response)
SavIsa Security  works with dozens of Metro Detroit Alarm Best Companies. See post for Alarm Companies and their Ratings

Detroit Police will NOT respond to Alarms

Today the Detroit Police Department announced they would not respond to alarms unless the alarms are verified by a Security Patrol Guard, homeowner, or if the building is monitored by audio or video. If audio or video is the source, it must be recorded and saved.

“According to the memo, sent to alarm companies and signed by Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee, 98 percent of alarms handled by the DPD are false.”

What does this mean for your business? It means you need to hire a Security Company to handle Alarm Response. Our Sister Company, BCI Security, provides Alarm Response with Marked Security Vehicles and Knowledgeable Patrol Officers that respond to alarms within 15 minutes.  44 years experience in the Investigations and Security Business.  BCI has an established patrol network canvasing the Metro Detroit Area. Contact BCI for a free consultation today 248-583-0125.
