Burglary attempt on surveillance store

This is another instance of I am sure thousands of others where a criminal was persuaded by the watchful eye of a surveillance camera. The funny thing is this guy tried to burglarize a surveillance store, what was he thinking?

Sentry1st Quality Surveillance

What are your thoughts on surveillance? Do you see a need in your own life to protect the people closest to you, your property, and possessions with a surveillance system? How about your business?

Crime Investigation

As I alluded to in my earlier post, I have been working on the surveillance website, Sentry1st.com. Since surveillance goes a long way toward preventing burglary and theft I thought I would do some research on the subject.

In my research I found some relatively recent statistics on burglary and larceny/theft in the United States. In 2005 alone there were 2,154,126 burglaries and in my home state of Pennsylvania there were 56,134 of these nasty housebreak-ins. The larceny/theft statistics were much higher with 6,776,807 cases of theft that same year.

With such statistics in mind you can understand how having a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) surveillance system can be very helpful when it comes to protecting your property, family, and possessions. Now I know stating these statistics could come across as trying to use fear tactics. That is not my intention. I simply want to raise awareness along with presenting a possible solution when it comes to preventing crimes against one's property, possessions, and family.

Welcome to my world and recent events


Let see, where to start? Well first of all I want to welcome you to the all new Blue Ripples blog, a place where you can connect with me and others. One place to connect with others by chat or the soon to come shout box at my website Hearts Ablaze. You can also read some of my prose/writings on the site. I also have a very rough draft of a short film I have written called Hidden.

Recently in life (over the past year):

I have graduated from high school and have been working with my dad until I go to school for film making this April. One of the things I have been doing for him is building a website that features surveillance equipment. The site is www.Sentry1st.com and provides pretty much all you would want to know about the helpful surveillance products from Sentry1st. In addition to working on the the surveillance site I have learned how to do polite upfront sales calls to provide a solution for a problem. The problem being abuse, theft, and property damage, with the solution being surveillance. People tend to behave better when they know they are being watched.

Working on this is most likely temporary. I have a desire to go into the film industry and work with people who want to have a positive impact on the world through the powerful tool of television and film. I lean toward the writing side of film, but also have an interest in camera work as well.

As I have stated I have a strong desire to make films that will have a positive effect on society. I have an idea for a film of a modern adaption of the prodigal son. I have other ideas for movies you can ask about or maybe you have a good one. Let me know.
