What Are Follow-Home Robberies?
If you haven’t heard about follow-home robberies yet, we are glad you are learning about them today. Follow-home robberies refer to the eruption of targeted attacks that have occurred in the greater Los Angeles area since the start of 2022. Unlike common street robberies, these crimes are well thought out, carefully executed, and more difficult to prevent. A typical follow-home robbery looks something like this:
A group of criminals will wait outside of a high-end store or shopping area and carefully select their victims.
Once the victim(s) leaves the area, the criminals will follow them from a distance, waiting for the perfect moment to strike.
Then, when the victim enters a secluded area, lets their guard down, or makes it back to their home, the criminals ambush the victim and demand all of their belongings through the use or threat of force.
According to the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioner Task Force, there were 221 instances of follow-home robberies in the first four months of 2022 alone. What makes this even more concerning is that investigators have identified at least 17 different gangs involved in these incidents. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill stick-ups born from desperation — they are deliberate attacks conducted by organized criminals.

As one of the area’s leading providers of residential surveillance systems and security monitoring services, our team can provide you with a comprehensive solution for your property.
Real-Time Monitoring & Prevention
The majority of home security monitoring agencies use signal-based surveillance systems to “secure” your property. This means that they rely on motion detectors and other sensors to alert them to a potential threat on your property. When these sensors are triggered, the agency then alerts you and gets in touch with law enforcement. The problem is, that they can’t do their job until after an incident has occured. That’s where Knight Protection, Inc. does things differently.
The nature of follow-home robberies demands a more robust and dynamic security solution. That’s why Knight Protection, Inc. offers real-time monitoring of your property, 24/7.
