Home Security: How do you protect yourself?


Crime, particularly robbery and burglary, can be found in most places around the world, and learning to deal with it----including protecting yourself----is an important concern. Furthermore, as you travel to new places, you need to take precautions to minimize your risk of theft. Here is my newest listening activity on the topic at my site, www.esl-lab.com:
Although the conversation is somewhat humorous, the topic of crime and theft can never be taken lightly. So, let's suppose you have an international friend that has just moved into your area. What advice can you give the person to protect himself/herself from theft?

  1. In my town, mostly people take part in traffic by motorbike and bicycle. Motorbike theft often happens, partially because of lacking vigilance. If my friend comes to my area, I will remind her to be cautious when she travels by herself. I hope she will enjoy a trip and avoid unfortunate things.

  2. I live in a city where crime rate is not to high,yet.However,I have to be aware of the danger in my neihborhood. I don't have a gun to protect my family, I should have one.

    Our national security is in our
    government hands.Since the United States is considered the world's capital, the strongest country, and perhaps the world's police. People abroad want to hurt its stability. They have to see, that this country is the way it is because there are people from all around the world. Therefor the government has to protect its interests.

  4. I think neighborhood engagement is crucial to fostering safe homes. In general, I would advise a visitor to practice common sense safety and security ... don't carry items of value, keep wallets and money securely hidden on your person, travel in pairs or groups, stay in well-lite public areas, go inside businesses to ask for directions rather than stopping someone on the street.

  6. I would tell him or her to take the minimum amount of things, valuable things never, when she or he is going to walk on street.In my opinion, if you are planning to go to a place that is open, a street or a park for example, you must take with you a document, a little money and things that are extremelly important to you(cellphone, cards, etc).For example, in Brazil, when you request a bus, you do not have to pay your transport with tickets, the only payments that are accept are money or a card with transport credits, so you may take this card with you before you go out.
    So, my advices are simple: pay attention around you and be sure that you are not taking valuable things with you.

  7. I will tell him to buy a new security system for his house, plus he should try and lock his door everytime he leaves the house.
