We provide fair, caring and sensitive services to assist persons who’s lives have been affected by crime.

“Lack of / or Inadequate Security” negligence is the legal theory through which the victim of a criminal act such as an assault may claim compensation from the owner of the property where the attack occurred. The property owner can be held liable for failing to take reasonable steps to ensure users of the property are safe.
