Security Risk Assessment

A security risk assessment is a study and review of how vulnerable you, your family and property are to theft or home invasion. Fire can also be a security threat, particularly if you have a home based business where confidential, legal documents and your business equipment are located. By assessing your home's security risk, you can reduce the possibility of a disastrous event occurring. Each area of home and property has a different level of risk and deserves to be treated individually.

Next, you should check the exterior or perimeter of your property and decide how easy it would be for someone to steal something right off of your lawn, near your pool, or behind your garage and house. Then examine your house and garage windows to determine how easy it would be to get through them. Older houses may have windows that are worn and weathered, made of wood that is more easily pried apart or window panes that could be taken out manually by an intruder.

Could someone possibly gain access through any of your first floor or basement windows? Would the neighbors hear anyone breaking into your house? Not many neighbors do hear break-ins at a neighbor's house.

Next, check your door locks including your garage doors. Do you use deadbolts? Are your locks from a different era? If your locks are worn and easy to...
