No Handcuffs “WHAT TO DO WHEN” Infographic

The information from this infographic came from both personal and professional experience. There’s a lot of information on the subject that comes from one or two experiences. Sometimes the information comes from pure speculation. Would you trust someone that said “I was in a fight once before and here’s what I think you should do if you ever get into a fight…”?

It was designed to help you in those times of when you don’t know what to do first. Do you actually know what to do if you’re involved in a car accident? What should you do if you get pulled over?

“Calm down”

Beware of these Common Holiday Crimes

The holiday season has arrived. Most people would say this is best part of the year. Everyone seems to be more pleasant, cheerful and kinder than usual.

And these crooks commit crimes wearing black hooded sweatshirts and sunglasses. What about someone with a family? It could even be someone who is fortunate enough to have a job during these harsh times. What if it was your neighbor? Continue Reading…
