Concerns about Tennessee security guard companies

Many of Nashville’s elderly and disabled citizens have much to fear due to rising crime rates at the apartment complexes where they live. There are seven high-rise public housing towers who’s incidents of criminal activity have increased substantially in recent days.

The security for those apartments is the responsibility of the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA). Shockingly, MDHA employs only two security guards to protect over 5,000 apartments. This is woefully insufficient and leaves so many of our city’s most vulnerable citizens helpless in the face of increasingly dangerous and brazen criminals, all made worse by an inexcusable lack of adequate security at the apartment complexes where they live.

If you have been the victim of a crime and you feel it was the result of inadequate security, please call the dedicated attorneys at The Higgins Firm and let us evaluate your case. The first consultation is always free and we have the training, experience, and resources necessary to protect your rights and to be your advocate in your fight against inadequate apartment security.
