Sponsored by YourLocalSecurity.com, the goal of the Home Security Scholarship is to encourage America's youth to find solutions that help make our homes and communities safer. YourLocalSecurity.com helps secure our nation's homes from basic security systems in Jacksonville, FL to top-of-the-line home security in San Diego, CA. While home security systems can help deter burglaries, we, as a fellow citizens must find solutions to address the root causes of crime. Wherever you live, we hope you take an interest in taking steps to reduce crime in your hometown, so that as a nation we can enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for many many years to come.
