Is Safety a Priority?

MHN and Kingsley Associates asked renters what they think of the security measures at their communities, and what could be done to improve them.

Do your residents feel secure in their apartment or community? This month, MHN and Kingsley Associates asked renters what they thought of the safety measures, and what could be done to improve them.

“I wanted to add cameras to the outside of my apartment because of recent robberies in my building. To my dismay, management won’t allow it.” —Phoenix

“It’s not safe here. I’m still pretty upset that someone with accomplices was able to walk out of the complex with three large-screen televisions and no one noticed!” Tempe, Ariz.

“The sense of security here is low. The parking lot is extremely dark and we sometimes have to walk to our cars with our phone flashlights on as a safety precaution.” —Atlanta

“The building needs strict security measures to keep uninvited people out. I have noticed strange people lingering in the community and waiting for resident to leave or enter their apartments.” —Silver Spring,
