One simple way to improve your home's security is to install a security screen door in front of your main door. This metal door adds an extra layer of defense against break-ins, which is especially important if an incident were to occur while you and your family are in your home. Security screen doors are extremely difficult for a criminal to breach, and the presence of this door may deter a criminal from even attempting to target your home.
When I started making moves to create a safer home, I wasn't sure what I was up against. I knew that my home wasn't entirely safe because of some threats we had had to the area. I started thinking about what the biggest threats were to our home, considering everything from the type of burglaries that typically occured in our areas to the kinds of threats our home was most vulnerable to, and it became apparent to me that I needed to do a little more digging. I realized that I needed to talk to local law enforcement, so that's what I did. They gave me great tips for how to prevent accidents, and I've included that advice on this security blog.
