The High Cost of Crime

PSS offers Fixed and Airborne Wide Area Surveillance Sensors and Support Systems.

Despite a recent drop in crime, our cities is still face overwhelming problems.  Most major cities have between 20,000 to 100,000 crimes per year.  That is a staggering 75 to 300 crimes per day!   These rates impact every aspect of our communities; it makes people feel unsafe, it tears our families apart, cripples our neighborhoods, and destroys the business environment.   Jobs are lost, property values plummet, and hope disintegrates.


Our mission at PSS is to help restore a sense of security by assisting law enforcement and public safety departments reduce crime.    We are confident in our belief that when crime is reduced, the effects of crime can be reversed and that neighborhoods can be restored to vibrancy.
