Protect America Raises Community Awareness with New Crime Statistics Web Site and Alert Service

May 20, 2010

ROUND ROCK, Texas, May 20 /PRNewswire/ — Protect America, one of the nation’s largest and most affordable home security companies, launched a new and free crime statistics report and sexual predator alert service on its web site – all in an effort to raise community awareness and provide parents with necessary information to keep their families safe.

Protect America created this service on its web site using FBI data to show local crime statistics for all 50 states and most major towns and cities within each state. The site not only provides criminal information but also uses a formula giving cities and states a letter grade of A through F for their overall crime rate and gives grades for each crime category, ranging from aggravated assault to larceny.

In addition to the crime stats, the site also offers maps of local areas and locations for sexual offenders that live or work nearby. Users can learn more about offenders by navigating through the map, which displays pictures of offenders, along with additional information, including the nature of the offenses committed.

Protect America CEO Thad Paschall said he added this feature to his company’s web site as a free community service tool to raise awareness for parents. “I’m a father and I think, as a parent, it’s important to know if the community where I live is really safe. As the CEO of a security company, I’m aware of these statistics and sharing this information can only raise the awareness of the community as a whole,” said Paschall.

Protect America’s web site provides this free information, and offers another free service that allows parents to sign up for “Sexual Predator Alerts” by simply logging on to www.protectamerica.com/crime-rate and signing up for email alerts anytime a sexual predator moves into their area or anytime a new sexual predator is required to register in their area.

Protect America also recommends that every family consider getting a monitored home security system to protect their home and family. Protect America was named the #1 home security company in the country for three consecutive years by TopConsumerReviews.com and won the Consumer’s Digest Best Buy Award for its Copper Package home security system.

Protect America offers the most affordable home security solutions available saving consumers over 40 percent combined on equipment and monitoring, on average compared to ADT. The company also offers consumers a “Low Price Guarantee” on its most popular package, which provides consumers with coverage for up to 10 doors and windows for free when they sign up for monitoring services.

In a customer testimonial on the company’s website, Yvonne from Belen, New Mexico, said, “I just want to say thanks. One of my neighbors recently had a break in. During the questioning, the robber said that he wanted to break into our home but saw the sign that said our home was monitored by Protect America and went next door instead. My neighbors were lucky that my oldest son was up late that night and called the police. Thank you so much for keeping my family safe.”

Protect America offers consumers a free GE home security system when signing up for a monthly monitoring service. Protect America offers several equipment packages, along with flexible landline, broadband, and cellular monitoring options to create a menu of services that allows an affordable option for just about every family’s budget.
