The Best Personal Security Device is Alertness

Posted by

I received an email recently from a young lady who was browsing through different items in my on-line store 

http://www.personalsecuritydevices.org/

 . She explain it the holiday season and that she  wanted  to feel safe while she was out shopping.  She asked my opinion on what was the best or most effective device for personal defense. I think my answer surprised her. My response , " I want to encourage you to browse my store . We carry a variety of different items at competitive prices but , the most effective personal security device is alertness." It is imperative for people to be alert to the activities going on around them. One of the easiest and least expensive things a person can do is be cognizant of their surroundings. You are most vulnerable when  you are alone or distracted. The holiday season is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be the most dangerous time. In order to keep the mood merry, one needs to steer clear of suspicious situations and naughty criminals. When you leave the mall, before you walk outside, put your keys in your hand, think about where you parked and put your cell phone away. If you are comfortable carrying a device , whether , chemical , electrical or striking , make it easily  accessible and ready for use. Criminal look for people that aren't paying attention to what's going on around them. A large percentage of crimes are crimes of opportunity. Alertness and awareness are the foundation of personal security. Then my advice is to research different types of devices find what you are comfortable with and what works for you, familiarize yourself with it . Practice and become proficient with it. People take the time to think about your personal safety , especially during this time of the year. Criminals tend to strike more during the holiday season because they know people are preoccupied with shopping and getting thing prepared for family and loved ones. Even though people need to exercise caution during this time of the  year, they shouldn't let it keep them from enjoying  the season. We should always be prudent in our behavior and activities, but we need to enjoy this time, which traditionally is a time of joy and celebration.

Stay Aware, Be Prepared And Pray For Wisdom and Good Judgment

Your Assessment of Personal Safety

How safe you feel and how safe you actually  are can sometimes be miles apart. As we go through our daily lives we all make assessments based partially on several factors ; education , facts and emotions.
