There’s a reason why everyone prefers to reside in a gated community. There are various amenities, a sense of being a part of a large family and above all, better security than in independent houses. Most apartments do have guards, CCTV surveillance and very vigilant residents. So while this definitely puts them at a higher level of security, some isolated incidents still manage to happen and that instills fear in all of us.
So, how do you stop miscreants from slipping into a society and committing crimes?
There are the obvious options –
- Increasing the number of security guards on duty
- More CCTV cameras
- Drills for the residents to be vigilant all the time and to report any activity that seems suspicious
- Stricter rules for checking people in
There are quite a few things that can be done to ramp up security. But the thing is this – All these measures, even when implemented in the best possible way, are obsolete.
