INCIDENT 5: Front office was broken into and keys were stolen. Some locks were changed, but nothing was done to prevent this from occurring again.
The management/owner has failed to provide residents with notice of any of these incidents, besides incident 5. The management/owner has a duty to inform tenants of security breaches that occur in the common areas of the leasehold.
The management/owner has failed to remedy the breach of security. Management/owner had notice that there were ongoing security breaches and had a duty to remedy the situation. Management/owner failed to fulfill their duty because nothing different was done to prevent it from happening again.
The management/owner failed to fix and maintain the front gate, because on numerous occassions the gate has been open all throughout the night, and the management/owner was put on notice of this fact.
Installation of Surveillance Cameras
MANADATORY LOCATIONS: G1, G2, Elevator 1, Elevator 2, Lobby
ADDITIONAL LOCATIONS: Hallways on each floor
PURPOSE: A majority of the other apartment complexes on the street have video cameras. There is no argument that deterrence is the primary value in having video cameras. Because of the numerous vehicle break-ins, as well as the huge break-in in the office which resulted in a large number of locks being compromised, it is clear that video cameras are an absolute necessity.
1. Overall Safety and Security: Keeping tenants safe should be the primary concern. Surveillance cameras not only protect people, but protect their personal property.
2. Deterrence: This is the primary value in having security cameras. Prevention is better than cure. Knowing that the video surveillance can be pulled in case of any suspicion is enough to deter potential crimes from occurring.
3. Monitoring Visitors: Residents have various visitors, from friends to delivery people to maids. There is no way for them to see or control these individuals' actions.
4. Image: Security cameras in the apartment complex, apart from their obvious functional benefit, give the building an image of sophistication and seriousness. It helps create the right impression on new residents and draws the right crowd--professional, law abiding citizens.
