Company Summary

Safe Keeping has been developed through much research and effort to address public concern with property protection. Owner John Walter has developed a unique approach to home security. Having worked in law enforcement for over twenty years, the last five as a commander for the burglary unit of the Eugene Police Department, John understands the need for business and home security.

Safe Keeping will go into homes and businesses to make a video tape record of all the belongings in that business and residence. We will also act as consultants advising people about how they can better protect their property with on-site inspections. Safe Keeping will make a copy of the video for each customer and will have one on file at our business location. Our start up costs will be $4,000.
