Two recent stories in the news serve as a stark reminder of why we do what we do every day–to protect people.

In one of those stories, a convicted sex offender, Leroy Vance, was attempting to break into a woman’s Fairfield, California home through the doggie door.  Thankfully, she was able to immediately call the police and when they arrived shortly thereafter, Vance fled on foot. When the police apprehended him, they discovered that not only was he trying to break into the woman’s home, he was also wanted for violating his parole on a drugs sales offense.  Click here for more information.

In another story, a man who had been imprisoned for murder for nearly 30 years was released from prison.  Within two years of his release, he was arrested for killing someone once again.  Timothy Chavira had been convicted of the stabbing murder of his stepmother in 1986, when he was just 23 years old.  Now, at 56, he has been arrested for the stabbing death of a retired doctor in the area.  Click here for more information.

These cases exemplify why it is so important to learn about a person’s criminal background and, unfortunately, in some instances, criminal propensities.  Click here for more information about recidivism rates and studies and what they mean for all of us.
