The most dangerous person you can ever meet is the one whom you did not expect to attack you. However, we don't have to be afraid at all if you will have this safety service which I found that really helps you keep safe. It displays location of high crime areas and registered sex offenders (Crime Level and Sex Offenders Location). In addition, whenever you press the panic button, you can instantly access a safety network of friends, family, and neighbors near your location and the 24/7/365 Emergency Response Center that can escalate the situation to 911 with your Safety Profile and detailed situation data. There is much more features you can ever find, just check this out: https://login.safekidzone.com/Relentless-Protection-For-Our-Kids-With-a-Cell-Phone/?a_aid=52f12f7275422&a_bid=dc55bebf
