Our First Post....

After more than a dozen years in the security industry we realized that we are in a unique position in Vancouver. We see and hear what is going on crimewise in this beautiful city because we, as owners of RobberStoppers, get called to every part of it. We see the trends, we know who is being targeted, and how the bad guys got in.

And so the idea for this website was born. To share what we' ve seen and learned about property crime so that you, our readers, can become more informed, to know what may be happening in your area, and take better precautions to protect your home, family, and business.

Why do we care?
 Because John and I were born in Vancouver, he grew up on Lulu Island (now known as Richmond) and I in South Vancouver. We've lived in the West End, in Coquitlam, Delta and South Surrey. We remember how safe and peaceful it all used to be when we were growing up and we are shocked at how that has changed. Shocked that the lower mainland has the highest property crime rate in Canada and is now second only to Miami in all of North America, that many people don't feel safe in their neighbourhoods.

 And yes readers we now need to take steps to protect our homes and families and safeguard our possessions. I can wish that there wasn't a need for window bars and extra security in all areas of the lower mainland but wishing isn't going to make it go away. Both John and I are proud of our company and how we have helped people after an upsetting even tramautic experience and how we've protected others from having to go through that. If sharing our knowledge and experience helps even one person stay safe, then we're happy!

What can you expect to see on this site?
Funny stories, sad stories, trends, tips, opinions, information,  photos, and videos. We hope you will check back often!

Please check our company website  for information on our security products, free onsite estimates,  or give us a phone call 604 501-1288.

Thank you,
Karen and John Leyburn

This was originally our first post but I thought I would re-submit it for newer readers.
