Today consumers can be more assured than ever that their locksmith can provide them with any service they need. While theft and property crimes continue to plague cities across the country, homeowners and business continue to up their security game, often working with professionals to ensure their locks are state of the art and that everything possible has been done to make their home or business safe. As a result, locksmiths have become an integral component in America’s security.
The Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA) describes the profession and each service one who works in the industry performs on any given day. This person is one of the most trusted members of a security team and is responsible for:
- Changing Locks
- Re-Keying Locks
- Set up and maintain electronic and mechanic locks
- Provide service for business, homes, and vehicles
As reported by the Huffington Post, the importance of having trusted locksmiths was illustrated when one cunning criminal tried to gain access to a home he claimed was his. Upon entry the would-be burglar began shuffling through draws saying he was looking for his spare keys and identification. The professional realized immediately that the person he had allowed in was not the homeowner and called the police, keeping the home safe.
The industry has set forth standards that each trained and licensed security professional uphold. While some states have laws that require locksmiths to see verification that their customer is authorized to enter the home through identification, others have left that duty to the security professional. This story illustrates the trust worthiness of the locksmith and that we can gain peace of mind by their integrity and quick thinking.
