"According to a report by the United States Department of Justice, 38% of assaults and 60% of rapes occur during home invasions. Although home invasion is not defined as a specific crime in many states, as a criminal practice, it is becoming increasingly prevalent. Previously, businesses, banks, and similar commercial institutions were the targets of choice for criminals because they held the promise of bigger payoffs. However, as security measures at these businesses have improved, targeting them has gotten increasingly difficult. This has made family homes a very attractive alternative for criminals.
While most people would like to believe that the solution to a home invasion is just a 911 call away, it’s not that easy. According to research done by the Atlanta Journal Constitution on police response times in major metropolitan areas, it typically takes at least 10 minutes for police to respond to a high-priority emergency call. Atlanta, which had the slowest response time of the seven cities studied, took on average 11 minutes and 12 seconds from the time a high-priority 911 call was received until a police officer arrived at the scene. A lot of bad things can happen to you and your family in 11 minutes. Even worse things can happen if you never have the opportunity to make that call."

The purpose of this course is to prepare you to protect yourself and your family in the event of a home invasion. In this course, the instructor will come to your home and consult with your entire family in a lecture type setting through hands-on application. We feel that it is extremely important to involve each and every member of the family to ensure they understand their role in the event of a home invasion crisis. In the lecture portion, we will cover each step of a home invasion, from hearing that "bump in the night" to proper interaction with law enforcement upon their arrival and all steps in between. Next, we will do a physical assessment of your personal and home security. Then we will discuss how to improve your security from the outside in, from internet and social media all the way to setting up a safe room within your home. Lastly, we will reenact various role-playing scenarios, involving the whole family, to ensure each and every family member understands their part during a home invasion.
