Crime Prevention & Criminal Research for Businesses & Residences.

CRIME PREVENTION v1.0: You & Those You Appoint

Your first line of defense against theft & burglary committed against your home and business is a loss prevention program. Your people, your cameras, your alarm system, dogs and how secure you are with your possessions… Those are all loss prevention version 1.0. They are the only way to KEEP commercial or residential property crime from being committed against you. Contact the ThiefHunter Labs Team to learn more about security & loss prevention planning.

CRIME PREVENTION v2.0: Law Enforcement

Your second line of defense against theft & burglary is Law Enforcement often comes after a crime has been committed. They do a good job and sometimes catch a thief in action. They can often ID criminals, find them, and are definitely the enforcement body to bring them to task for their crimes. But manpower is thin in policing in the public sector. There is always more crime and criminal research than any police force can complete. We consider Law enforcement version 2.0.


With ThiefHunter Labs, a third, very productive layer of defense and resolution is used to influence criminal behavior before a crime, identify and find criminals after a crime was committed, and aid police in locating them. It involves access our consultants, who have more than 130,000 Social Media followers in Southern Oregon & Northern California. It’s accomplished by connecting business professionals, technology, records databases and the public through local crowd-sourcing.
