Having Something Stolen from Me Woke Me Up to the Need for Security

Home security never seemed to be a problem when I lived at home with my parents. We lived in an upscale neighborhood built around the edges of a beautiful mountain. It was somewhat hard to get in and out of the neighborhood quickly, so burglars were not enticed by our location. Things changed when I got an apartment of my own in the center of our city where many people have easy access to the location where my apartment building is located. Previously, it never occured to me that people would choose apartments to burglarize, but I’ve learned that criminals find apartments to be easy pickings.

I realized that I was burglarized when I went out to get my bike off my balcony one morning so that I could bike to work, but it was missing. It confused me at first because I live on the second floor of my building. Other units across the way face my balcony. I scratched my head as I looked at the blank space where my bike usually sat on the balcony each day and night. Then, a woman on the balcony across from me came out and said that she heard that someone had shimmied up to my balcony and stolen my bicycle, yet no one had bothered to call the police.

The theft happened over night, and it alarmed me to think about a criminal being so close to me while I slept. He or she could have easily opened my sliding glass door and come into my bedroom. It also bothered me that someone had seen the theft happen, but they didn’t care about calling the police while it was happening. This led me to realize that they only way that I would remain safe is to purchase an alarm system as soon as possible.
