Based on requests from residents, the Historic Boston-Edison Association has contacted Dusing Security and Surveillance (DSS) to provide a security patrol in the Boston-Edison neighborhood.
How the Program Works:
- The cost per residence is $30.00 per month.
- DSS will patrol the Boston-Edison neighborhood a certain number of hours per week.
- Patrol hours are based on the number of subscribers. The more residences that pay, the more hours DSS will patrol.
- For example, in order to patrol the streets of Boston Edison for 40 hours a week, we would need 150 residences to pay $30.00 a month.
- DSS will charge individual residences directly for the patrol service.
- Dusing Security invoices directly at $30/month x 3 month subscription = $90. There are NO CONTRACTS. When your payment is received, you will be considered a paid subscriber.
Services that YOU would receive for subscribing:
- During every shift, DSS would spend a significant amount of time near your residence.
- If you get home late at night while DSS is on duty, you can call for the patrolperson to escort you to your home.
- If you are out of town, DSS will keep an extra eye on your residence (pick up papers, call you if there is unusual activity at your home, etc).
- During the patrol shift, if an alarm occurs at your house, DSS will respond: not to replace the police, but as an extra set of eyes and ears.
- If you have or want a monitored security system, DSS will provide the 24-hour alarm monitoring service to you at NO EXTRA CHARGE! Instead of paying two monthly fees, you pay DSS $30.00 a month to receive 24-hour alarm monitoring AND personalized patrol service.
Only subscribers receive these benefits.
