Crime and violence are generally not fun topics to write about or read about. Discussing a bloody home invasion isn’t exactly inspiring, nor does it make good dinner time chat.

Events like these are only “entertaining” when fictionalized in TV and movies and make for a gripping arms length “who dunnit”.

However the fact is these things do happen and sweeping these issues under the rug is no longer an option. For as long as I can remember “personal security” was always one of those misunderstood issues that our parents didn’t have any answers for.

The extent of our safety and security training revolved around “look both ways when you cross the street” and “don’t talk to strangers”. And it pretty much stopped there. For years and years I sought out a comprehensive resource to keep me updated on all issues personal security, however there was none.

And then there was Home Security Source is one of the few online resources with solid information on home and personal safety with new content every day. It’s a community website with the goal to offer the latest information to help homeowners to keep their homes, valuables, and family safe.

Home Security Source is your one stop to learn all about home security. It’s where you can find information about the latest news, security products, and any information that relates to your safety. On top of our large (and growing!) information, we also provide local crime maps for your area.

And to top it off I’m contributing all my research from over 20 years alongside stellar industry professionals dedicated to their craft.

It’s important to understand our culture has always been one to trust others and see the good in people.

While this civility has prompted us to get along and live in relative harmony, it also created a negative side effect of people putting the proverbial bedtime “sheet over their heads” so the monsters wouldn’t get them. This head in the sand, “it can’t happen to me” mentality has allowed the bad guy an upper hand for decades.

A change in attitudes is reflected by the success of Home Security Source. People want to know the truth. They feel they need to know their options and how to protect themselves and their families.

Here is an idea on how has grown:

Today more than ever the bad guy knows that you are watching him. His job isn’t as easy as it used to be. Citizens are empowered like never before with the knowledge and tools to take control of their lives and protect themselves and their families. Armed with the Home Security Source, knowledge is definitely power.
