If you watch the local television news in Central Florida or keep up with local news on the internet or local news websites, you know that attacks — and particularly shooting attacks– seem to be on the rise in Central Florida.
Peaceful people are terrified about this, and rightfully so. Any time a person pays good money to an apartment complex for rent, the tenant has a right to expect that reasonable security measures are being taken.
The question then becomes, “What is reasonable?”
Reasonableness is measured by what the apartment knows or should know about the potential for danger or violence in and around the apartment complex. The more dangerous the area, the more security that may be called for.
I recently shot a short video where I discuss how this works, and the responsibilities involved in operating or managing an apartment complex.
