We can really never trust anybody right now, even those people whom to be trusted by laws can not give us guarantee speaking of our safety. Being a victim yet speculated is a hard thing to carry. That's why we always have to be ready when it comes to circumstances like this. Let us not wait things may happen to us. Be alert and ready at all times. I read about this smart phone app in the internet and it really works good for me. They can help me 24/7 by their emergency response call center. They know where I am and with a single press of a panic button they know I'm in trouble so they could send help right away. Here's the link http://SafeKidZone.com
