Opening your home page, picking up a newspaper, or turning on any news network can leave you with a sense of how increasingly volatile the world around us is becoming. The heroin explosion happening in western New York and elsewhere is alarming to say the least. With the spread of this truly evil drug comes addiction, an increase in violent crime, and death. Take a look at your local crime statistics (Google, "crime statistics" followed b your zip code). The Buffalo area, according to the latest crime statistics available (2013) as posted on HomeFacts.com, doesn't fare too well. Violent crime in the Buffalo area is up 245%. Property crime is up 86%.
