When Crime Happens Elsewhere

The tendency of most people is to breathe a bit more easily when they read on the Internet or watch the television news and see a crime event not near where they live. It’s human nature to think you are more protected when something bad occurs miles away. At H&S Protection, we understand that feeling. But we urge you to consider a few other points to ensure your business or home is most effectively protected.


Recently, in a very small section of the Milwaukee metro area that we service, there was wanton destruction of several businesses. If you lived close to that area, your natural inclination was most likely fear for your home or business. If you’ve been in a similar situation, you may have taken steps to further secure your possessions.


During this recent bout, we received information that during the hub bub, several attempted break-ins occurred elsewhere in the city. Informed burglars use this tactic. When the police are occupied with a visible situation that takes extra manpower, that leaves other areas of the city vulnerable.


Our point in all this is to encourage you to remain vigilant about your safety and security if an area serviced by your police requires an extra expenditure of resources. That could mean the bad guys are looking for other vulnerabilities.

If you run a business, check your alarm. Make sure your cameras operate effectively. Talk to your employees about taking extra precautions.

If you’re a homeowner, communicate with your neighbors. Lock your doors. Turn on extra lights. Make sure your alarm system is armed and operating.
The best defense is preparation.  H&S urges you to stay informed and aware.

Dave Simon Joins H&S in Pewaukee Office

We’re pleased to announce Dave Simon has joined our H&S Protection team August 8. Dave will work out of our Pewaukee Office, servicing customers in Southeast Wisconsin as Director of Business Development.

We’ve known Dave for 12 years through his work in multiple roles in the security industry, first as an industry expert for Brink’s Home Security, working on national alarm management issues. He also spent time developing his own business, offering social media, marketing and communications services to clients in our industry.

Dave head shot 2016

Most recently, for the past year, we’ve gotten to know Dave even better through his work for H&S on our blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts. His role there was to build greater visibility for H&S and develop leads with potential customers. This summer we were able to structure a role to utilize Dave’s talents and help us grow our business.

We look forward to having Dave on board. If you know him, please drop him a line on his H&S position. We’re confident Dave will help us continue to build our customer base and branch out in new directions. H&S is dedicated to the best interests of our customers and we continually look for additional ways to give them the best and most innovative security services they seek. We’re proud to have Dave on board to help in this effort.
