The technician tells you “Oh, we had to do that because…” When you try and complain about it…nothing. You either pay or they file a lien against you and your home/vehicle. Sound familiar? These […]

A Request

For several months you’ve been reading my blogs and seeing the way I believe in security of people, where you work, and your children go to school.

I will give you a MILLION Dollars to read this post!

Up until recently, February 13, 2018, all indications from nearly everyone, especially educators were that violence from firearms and other deadly implements were down in our schools despite the number of studies, reports, white papers, and surveys that countered those statements.

Situational Awareness…why do you need it?
