Please check out the following Home Safety checklist from one of our 7th grade students who is working on their Eagle Scout badge.
As a Boy Scout, I am given the opportunity to complete a series of merit badges as I journey to the rank of Eagle Scout. I recently completed the Crime Prevention badge, which is defined by law enforcement as “the anticipation, recognition, and appraisal of a crime risk and the imitation of some action to remove or reduce the risk”.
One of the requirements of this merit badge was to conduct a crime prevention security assessment of a home using a checklist. I completed this checklist last weekend and found several areas that needed to be fixed to make my family’s house more secure.
I believe that my fellow classmates could benefit from completing the home security checklist at the link below which details 45 checkpoints and can easily be completed in 30-minutes or less. This I feel is a small investment in time, that can pay off greatly with a more secure home for the entire family.
