Recent data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation reveals that nearly 70 percent of home break-ins are caused by forced entry. To help increase home safety, Schlage, America’s most trusted brand in security 1 and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is spearheading a national neighborhood safety initiative in conjunction with crime prevention program National Neighborhood Watch-USAonWatch and its 40th anniversary to help residents make their neighborhoods safer.
Schlage has donated hundreds of its new alarmed locks ( www.alarm.schlage.com) – an innovative residential door lock with an audible built-in alarm sensor that alerts residents the moment there is activity at the door – to local Neighborhood Watch block captains located in 40 cities across the U.S. Local neighborhood block captains will distribute alarmed locks to other community residents as a way to deter potential burglaries and other criminal activity.
“During this extended recession, we’re hearing from more and more families that are worried about local crime but can’t afford the high cost of a professionally monitored home alarm system,” said Ann Matheis, Schlage brand director. “Schlage is committed to making our communities more secure, and we’re excited to join forces with Neighborhood Watch to create a real local impact across the country.”
The Schlage alarmed lock serves as a theft deterrent by sounding a shrill, steady siren at first impact, making it ideal for nighttime use or when no one is home.Increasing Neighborhood Security in 40 Cities Initially, the safety program and alarmed lock donation will be rolled out in the following cities: Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Boston, Washington (D.C.), Atlanta, Houston, Detroit, Seattle, Phoenix, Tampa, Fla.; Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Orlando, Fla.; Sacramento, Calif.; East St. Louis, Ill.; Portland, Ore.; Pittsburgh, Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Charlotte, N.C.; Indianapolis, Baltimore, San Diego, Nashville, Tenn.; Hartford, Conn.; Kansas City, Mo.; Columbus, Ohio; Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, San Antonio, West Palm Beach, Fla.; Las Vegas, Providence, R.I.; Spokane, Wash.; Boise, Idaho; Santa Barbara, Calif.; Long Island, N.Y.; and Neptune, N.J.
