We discuss how to protect your home from burglars, home invasion robbers, and how a safe room concept might work as part of your family security plan.
- In this episode, learn about home security and how to make any home, condo, or apartment into your castle and protect all those who live in it.
- Today’s show is a partial recording from a YouTube Channel interview where I give off-the-top-of-my-head remarks about Home Security.
Today’s co-host Dunagun Kaiser interviewed me for the “Reluctant Preppers” show over on the YouTube Channel. I gave my thoughts about home security and preventing crimes like home burglary, home invasion robbery, and my personal strategy for creating and using a safe room.
Like some of my guests here at Crime School, I had no idea what questions would be asked or where the interview might go.
