One of the things that happens in the United States is that people are in transition. They are looking for new jobs and moving into different areas because of this. Rarely do you still see the small towns where you know everyone and everyone knows you.
Living in a city like Greenville, South Carolina, one of the fastest growing cities in the US, people are constantly moving in and out. Because of this, we don’t have the same connections with people like they do in the small towns.
How do you build those connections? How do you secure your area and keep your area safe?
You are going to have to build some sort of community.
One of the things that you should not forget about is your neighborhood watch or crime watch. These groups are there to keep an eye out and document certain things in your area. Sometimes it is a group of old ladies keeping an eye out in your neighborhood, but maybe it’s not. A lot of times these groups of people can be more important than that. It can be a great tool to use. The crime watch website in your neighborhood can help you to see the total amount of crimes that are being reported. Just being aware of these resources may not be enough. Get involved or create your own neighborhood watch to help keep your community safe.
We have seen a lot of civil unrest in the United States. With the defund the police movement, it can be dangerous in your community, especially if you’re an urban community. You have got to have some sort of network or groups where you can supplement.
Self-defense is your responsibility and it is what the Second Amendment is all about, whether locally or nationally. One of the big problems right now is that a lot of law enforcement is getting stuck. They are not able to do the things necessary to subdue people. One of the problems is a lot of resistance and because of that we are seeing issues.
Begin to look at ways that you can come in can help. First, make sure that you know your neighbors. Call them and set up some sort of community watch if it’s just on your street. Being able to know what’s going on in your neighborhood and being able to tell people what you know is great for everyone.
Outside of a community watch and knowing your neighbors, it is great to have some people that you can call on if something happens. Maybe it’s people that you already know from different organizations. It’s just a great idea to have people you can call if you’re in a bad situation.
Church groups are a really good source if you are looking for people to have your back. Those are people that you worship with and see on a regular basis. You really get to know those people and create a common thread together.
If you are a veteran and know a number of other veterans in the area, this is a great way to create a security team. You all have skills already and in the case something goes wrong, you will have more people open to building a security team.
The national media has really demonized militias, but that’s one of the things the United States was built on. People that are ready to go. You need to make sure that you filter your group because you don’t want to have people in your group with some outside ideas that are contrary to what you believe in. In Virginia, a lot of militias were reinstated in counties where all the gun control was being talked about. These militias were seen as allies and were also being led by law enforcement.
Building up the community to protect your homes and the places you shop from the looting that is going on is in your best interest. Don’t let these places be destroyed because a lot of times they either won’t or can’t be rebuilt.
Prepper groups are also a great idea for a security team because you have a lot in common and are already prepared for if something goes wrong. You all think alike and can come together to protect your communities.
Get to know your law enforcement. Talk to them about what you can be doing and how you can help them. It is a great idea to be an ally to the law enforcement. A lot of these men and women are Second Amendment supporters and are dedicated to protecting you and protecting your rights. Most of them are great people and it’s very important to be able to get to know them so that not only can you count on them, but they can also count on you.

If you can, encourage your law enforcement officers. They need it right now. Unfortunately, morals are really low within law enforcement and right now we need them.
Family and friends are a great group for a security team if they live nearby. You can trust them and know that you will have each other’s backs in the case that something happens. Talk to them about security and see what ideas they have to better protect your community.
On a side note, make sure that you agree with and trust all the ideas of people in your security team. If someone has ideas that you don’t agree with, you need to be careful. If they were to make a decision that was not a good one, it could cause you to have legal consequences later down the road. You need to trust these people and make sure that they aren’t going out and doing things that you don’t want to be a part of.
We need to be ready to protect our families, communities, and businesses. Become associated with people who will have you back. Make sure that you are not becoming associated with people who see themselves as above the law or doing things above the law. This can only cause problems for you and you don’t want that.
