ApartmentCrime-300x200Richardson Apartment Managers Crime Awareness Group

The Richardson Police Department is helping local apartment owners and property managers to deter crime and protect their tenants.

The Richardson Apartment Managers Crime Awareness Group provides an avenue for property managers to partner with their Police Department to address crime issues affecting resident safety and the protection of property. Managers meet quarterly with Crime Prevention Officers, Patrol Officers, and Detectives working in their area. A guest speaker addresses a topic of interest specific to property managers. This format equips managers with information to better serve their residents and to reduce crime, while demonstrating to tenants that management is concerned about their welfare.

Apartment Community Crime Watch

Resident involvement may also compel managers to become more involved.

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the property owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
