With that being said... We didn't create this poll just for fun. We created it to ask a question then do our part to assist in correcting it.
We are reaching out to community watch programs, law enforcement professionals, security specialists, and most importantly YOU to assist in defeating this issue. We will be posting more security related topics in the future with several tips to promote a safer community.
