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.

Create a FREE Child ID Kit for Emergencies and Amber Alerts

Published by Crystal on July 13th, 2011 - in Parents and Children


You should make an emergency Child ID Kit in case of emergency!

It’s free to do so at Radio Amber, the Amber Alert Website and system.

God forbid anything happen to our children, but you want to be prepared just in case!

The link is at the top of their page, but here is a direct link to the form.

Once you create the kit, you can save it to your computer, thumb drives etc. I like the thumb drive idea because you can keep it with you on your key chain or upload it to Google documents so you can access it from anywhere.



Identity Theft and Steps to Prevent it

Published by Crystal on July 1st, 2011 - in Home Safety

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has reported that for the 11th straight year ID Theft is at the top of its list. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 1.34 million consumer complaints during 2010, with ID theft complaints making up 19 percent of the reports.

Definition of Identity theft: Identity theft occurs when your personal identifying information such as: your name, Social Security Number (SSN), credit card number(s) and documents are used without your permission to commit fraudulent transactions or other crimes while creating a phony persona with the criminal intent of financial gain.

Steps for Identity Theft Safeguarding:

Shred all documents containing your personal information

Don’t leave receipts at ATMs or store checkouts

Carry only necessary identification with you and avoid carrying your Social Security card

Never leave a computer in the middle of your online session

When you’re done with an online session, always log off the website

Never give out your passwords; If other people have access to your computer, clear your browser’s cache (this removes copies of recently accessed web pages stored temporarily on your computer)

Social Networking and Safety

Published by Crystal on June 22nd, 2011 - in Computer Security, Home Safety

Did you know that facebook is a way that your “friends” can figure out when you’re home, at work, on vacation, etc? Protect yourself this holiday weekend and always. Don’t broadcast when you plan to be gone. It’s fine to say you had fun on vacation when you get home. But if you are going camping don’t post that on facebook! This tells people that your house is wide open for criminals to break in and steal from you! Especially if you have people from your past on your friends list. You add them as a friend, but you don’t know what they are up to now. People get desperate. Don’t leave yourself open for disaster.


Share this post with your friends on facebook as a reminder to protect themselves!
