In grocery stores, shopping centers, apartment complexes, hotels and other public spaces, we rely on the owners and managers of these facilities to maintain adequate security to provide a safe environment for the public. When this does not happen, bad things can happen to good people.
Whether you are entering the parking area of your apartment complex, making your way to your hotel or motel room, or enjoying a leisurely shopping trip, you rely on the owners and managers of these businesses to keep you safe while on their premises.
