When viewing crime a very high percentage of attacks occur in the driveway of the home and this is what makes the  Driveway Security Risk Assessment a necessityVictims are targeted when they are at their most preoccupied and distracted due to busy lifestyles, schedules and other modern day stresses and pressures. Criminals are aware of this and use this moment of vulnerability to spring the element of surprise. Only a few short seconds are required to catch you off guard. Although this is most applicable to residents arriving home after a long day of work or playing taxi to the kids, the same tactic is used to target businesses upon opening and closing time.

In some incidents the driveway hijacking can turn into burglary or even worse as the driver and passengers are used as a ‘human key’ to gain access into the property and home. Crime remains an unpleasant topic and is therefore avoided especially within the family unit and there are children involved. This consequently results in security not being discussed or fully addressed. Furthermore we are all guilty of the mindset that “This wont’ happen to me or my family” and only once it is too late and crime has already occurred, do we begin to acknowledge and realise the need for and value of security.

Security is more than just hardware

Many assume that security is only the hardware installed such as the alarm or the CCTV system; the family guard dog or even the Security Officer posted at the entrance of a boomed off community. Although this is a featuring factor in successful security, it will fail if some other intangible elements are not in place. This includes Security Awareness and willpower which is a necessary mindset required to ensure that your security is functioning at optimal level. It is also important to bear in mind that not all crime can be stopped. In this event safety needs to kick in when security is no longer effective. The Driveway Security Risk Assessment will make you more aware. Knowledge is power and this can be used to avoid hijackings in the future.
