Crime Prevention in El Cerrito

All-Guard helping crime prevention in El CerritoThe first quarter of 2013 saw a significant increase in residential burglaries in El Cerrito, prompting the local Police Department to brainstorm some ideas how to help better prepare their residents for property crime. They decided to host an event that would not only feature alarm companies, but would also include companies selling doors, locks, and windows, as well as electricians and firearms safety representatives.

The event took place on June 1 at the El Cerrito Community Center, and All-Guard was participating both as an exhibitor and as a panelist at the community Q&A sessions.

“We recognize that neighborhood involvement is a key component of secure neighborhoods and made neighborhood watch and our crime prevention committee another important component of the event,” states Lt. Paul Keith, El Cerrito Patrol Division.

Lt. Keith continues, “During the planning of the event, the rate of burglaries continued to beat that of the previous year.  By the end of April, our burglaries were 44% above the same period in 2012. As of the end of May, we are 39% above the burglary rate of last year with a total of 139 burglaries.”

El Cerrito Police Department does an excellent job of serving their community although, unfortunately, it does not always translate into low property crime.”I think the bigger factor is that the greater urban area is a huge driving force for crime in El Cerrito. When burglaries are down in Berkeley, Richmond, Albany, San Pablo, and Kensington, they are usually down in El Cerrito as well. Likewise, when they are up in those jurisdictions, they are typically up in our city as well,” concludes Lt. Keith.

The local support was tremendous; the event was very well attended. We spoke to residents not only from El Cerrito but also from the surrounding towns, all very interested in learning about the benefits of All-Guard’s alarm systems.

A monitored alarm system is your best defense against burglars and your best investment for protecting your family and your home.
