Lone Star, TX Population & Crime Analysis
Lone Star, TX is home to right around 1,500 residents, which is a slight decline over the past ~30 years (down from 1,606 in 1990). It’s a quiet, fairly peaceful town–though it does have its fair share of crime. Fortunately, the crime isn’t rampant, but it is fairly on par with national averages when you look at crime totals for the region:
Annual Violent Crimes: 19
Annual Property Crimes: 21
40 annual crimes may not seem like much, but the numbers by category are a bit skewed. For violent crime, the rate is almost 3 times higher than the state average (there are 4.39 violent crimes per 1,000 residents each year on average in Texas, but there are 12.47 violent crimes per 1,000 residents on average each year in Lone Star).
Conversely, the property crime rates are significantly lower in Lone Star than across Texas–there are approximately 25.6 property crimes per 1,000 residents each year in Texas on average, but only about 13.8 per 1,000 residents in Lone Star (close to half). While the fairly low property crime rate is fairly reassuring, the disproportionately high violent crime rates land Lone Star with an F rating for crime.
Even though property crime is fairly low compared to the state average, Lone Star is only safer than 8% of U.S. cities, and your chances of becoming a victim of any crime are 1 in 39. Anyone who lives in an average to high crime area would be wise to implement some sort of reliable security system for your home to protect yourself, your family, and your property… Lone Star is no exception.
Home & Residential Security Systems in Lone Star, TX
While violent crime ratios are higher than property crime ratios in Lone Star (vs. state averages), they are about equal as far as flat numbers go–about 20 residents each year are victims of violent crimes, and about 20 are victims of property crimes. While those numbers may not seem large, going through the expense and effort to secure your home (which isn’t as difficult or expensive as many would believe) can help prevent you from becoming a victim.
Smart burglars and thieves will often case a home before they decide to break in, and will look for patterns, times the house will most likely be empty, etc. They will also look for signs of a security system–do you stop near the door on your way out to arm a system? Can they hear beeps when your doors open and close? The list goes on and on. By implementing even a simple, reliable system, you can deter potential would-be criminals and help improve your odds of keeping yourself, family and property safe.
Simple home security systems should include door and window monitoring at the minimum, to help ensure that no one comes into your home when you’re not expecting them to. More advanced features can also be added if you’re interested in a more comprehensive security solution. Examples of security technology for homes include: CCTV and video surveillance equipment, remote monitoring features to keep an eye on your home when you’re away, perimeter monitoring and detection, motion detection, and even access control to keep sections of your home (rooms, cabinets, etc.) secure.
Business & Commercial Security Systems in Lone Star, TX
Businesses and organizations need a dependable and reliable security system to protect staff, visitors, assets, and property from thieves, vandals, and ne’er-do-wells. If you run a business or organization, no matter what marketing you’re in or how large or small your operation may be, there are likely hard assets of some sort that are on premises that could be valuable to criminals.
Even if you don’t store cash on your property, you likely have computers and other electronics that could be resold for a fast and easy profit. Additionally, you and your employees likely have personal property that may be left on the premises, so it’s in your best interest to ensure those items are as protected as possible as well.
Different businesses and organizations need different types of security technology and different levels of security–for example a bank or hospital may require access control to protect areas with valuables and sensitive information, while a small office may only require a simple intrusion detection system. A construction company with a fleet of vehicles may require perimeter monitoring and/or high-definition video surveillance (various technology can be utilized, including radar detection, infrared/thermal cameras, etc.)
