Because loitering happens in all our service areas, we know how businesses throughout the Tri-State area are impacted by it. When loiterers persistently station themselves in or around a business, prospective customers can be dissuaded from entering. Once they tell others about the loitering taking place, word can spread very quickly. In short, loitering has a detrimental impact on entire blocks of businesses. Loitering also happens outside apartment buildings, which can lead to residents feeling unsafe and detracts prospective new tenants. Loitering is no small matter, which is why video surveillance is needed to help fight it.
