Private Security Reduces Public Crime?

Whoulda' thunkit?

John Sodaro, at The Crime Report pointed us toward an interesting paper.

The RAND study The Effect of Business Improvement Districts on the Incidence of Violent Crimes suggests that private sector spending on security improvements be considered as part of the reason crime rates continue to fall year over year.

Very interesting news, especially for private sector security professionals.  It only makes sense that effective corporate security programs contribute to the reduction of crime rates in the the communities where companies operate.  It's time private security takes some credit.  Public policing is not the only way to affect crime rates.

Yes, indeed.
