In todayÂs society, predators lurk in unexpected places. But you can prevent personal attacks, burglaries, workplace violence, and other crimes from happening to you. The first step in prevention is awareness. By becoming aware of what could potentially harm you and your loved ones, you will be armed with the knowledge and resources to remain safe in every aspect of your life. With January being National Personal Self-Defense Awareness month, now is the perfect time to learn practical ways to keep yourself safe.
In his new book, Think Safe: Practical Measures to Increase Security at Home, at Work, and Throughout Life (Cameo Publications, $19.95, ISBN 0-9744149-6-4), personal safety and security expert James M. McGrew provides straightforward advice and practical prevention strategies to help you and your loved ones remain safe throughout life. In addition, McGrew includes examples of real-life experiences to add value and perspective on contemporary crime issues and to mitigate risk. McGrew covers a huge range of possibilities and preventions but stresses the fact that you donÂt have to be paranoid or afraid to live your life. You do need to become more aware, though. McGrew states, ÂBy becoming aware of what scams and dangers exist, and of the ways to protect yourself and whatÂs important to you, you will make better decisions. And making better, more informed decisions is truly the foundation of personal security.Â
Highly practical and informative, Think Safe shows you how to ensure the safety of your children; protect yourself and your loved ones against common, but often unforeseen, scams and swindles; find help and support for such issues as domestic violence, sexual harassment, personal attacks, identity theft, and elder abuse; identify and act on potentially violent behaviors in your employees and co-workers; and assess the security of your home and neighborhood with an industry professional Residential Security Survey. The advice and strategies in this book can help you make better decisions to increase the safety and security in your own life, and in the lives of the people you love. You will learn that the key to preventing crimes against you and your family is to Âthink safe.Â
