Video Surveillance Systems in Kansas

Kansas is a state in the Midwest United States. The current estimated population is 2,904,021 and the capital is Topeka. Kansas became part of the US with the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Kansas was originally part of the Missouri Territory. The first permanent settlement of white Americans in what is now Kansas was established in 1827 as Fort Leavenworth. The Kansas Territory was established in 1854. The territory was divided over slavery as many of the new settlers battled over whether or not to make slavery legal. The many battles gave Kansas the nickname of “Bleeding Kansas.” Kansas was admitted as the 34th state in 1861. Slavery was not permitted in the new state. Many new settlers came to the state after the Civil War including many freed African-Americans. Racial segregation became common practice in Kansas and many states during this time. The landmark case Brown v. Board of Education was filed in the District Court of Kansas when a local parent sued the Board of Education of Topeka for not allowing his daughter to attend the “white school” that was close to their home. The Supreme Court reviewed the case and handed down the historic decision that separate but equal is inherently unequal. Schools nationwide were ordered to integrate. There is a National Historic Site in Topeka honoring this historic court case. Kansas was a frontier state and experienced a significant “Wild West” era during its early years. Wyatt Earp and Wild Bill Hickok both spent time as lawmen in the state. Cattle were often transported through the state from Texas to the east. Agriculture has long been an important part of the Kansas economy. Major outputs include cattle, wheat, soybeans and corn. Kansas is also one of the top producers of oil in the US. The aerospace industry is another increasingly important sector of Kansas’ economy. Top employers in the state include Spirit AeroSystems, Sprint Nextel and Cessna. All of which have headquarters in the state along with Payless Shoes and Koch Industries. The University of Kansas and Kansas State University are the two largest universities in the state. Many notable people are from Kansas including former President Dwight D. Eisenhower who is buried in Abilene which is also the location of his Presidential Library. Also, both The Wizard of OZ and In Cold Blood are set in Kansas.

The overall crime rate in Kansas is about the same as the national average. It is not considered to be any more or less dangerous than average. There is one city in Kansas that has a crime rate that ranks among the lowest in the nation: Leawood. Most other cities in Kansas have crime rates that are near the average. The chance of becoming a victim of a violent crime in the state is 1 in 294 and of property crime is 1 in 34. The two most common crimes committed are theft and burglary. In 2013 there were 61,264 reported cases of theft and 17,375 cases of burglary. Residents of Kansas can protect themselves and their property from theft while also helping to lower crime rates by installing surveillance systems in their homes and businesses. Properties with surveillance systems are known to experience less crime than those without. Surveillance systems can also create a safer environment and help Kansas to go from an average crime rate to a low crime rate. Properties that can benefit from surveillance systems include homes, offices, retail stores, museums and many other locations.
