Preventing Homeless Intrusion on Your Property

The homelessness crisis across the nation has greatly impacted the areas we service, including Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. Because homelessness has become such an issue throughout the region, local agencies are now partnering with private institutions in an effort to combat the problem. For example, the Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh (FHLBank Pittsburgh) recently announced a $1.075 million investment in grants for homelessness reduction programs.

With Father’s Day approaching, it’s time to turn our attention toward ways to make Dad’s day extra special. Now that many fathers are starting to return to in-person work (after a year of working from home and helping with remote learning), this year’s Father’s Day calls for smart home security technology to make his life – and, your whole family’s life – a whole lot simpler. 

Staying on Top of Summer School Security

It’s been an unusual school year — and now, many campuses will be vacated again for summer vacation. Empty school grounds are susceptible to all kinds of security risks, whether it’s students exploring the campus at night or breaking and entering by people with more malicious intentions. The relaxed tempo of summertime can be inviting for everyone from the curious to the criminal, so it’s definitely not the time of year to let school security slide. Even if school police stay on duty during the summer, schools need extra security.
