You can outsource just about anything these days. Someone or some company will clean your house, walk your dogs, do your laundry and run your errands. Many people even outsource their kids to babysitters, camps, online social networks, and sports teams.
The recent “Dinner Set” burglars demonstrated the limitations associated with being dependent on other people and other things for safety. These thieves stole more than $2 million in high-end jewelry from homes throughout South Florida. At least six of these burglaries occurred in gated communities in Boca Raton. The suspects broke into houses where alarms were not set and in some of the cases, they entered through unlocked doors.
Gates, walls, guards, alarms and surveillance technology all have great deterrent value. I highly recommend these security measures. However, you have to take affirmative steps to safeguard yourself, your family, and your belongings.
Doors should be locked and alarms should be activated. You should always be alert for people and circumstances which appear to be suspicious.

Even though we live in a safe community, everyone needs to be reasonably vigilant. Don’t outsource your safety.
