What would you do if you were the victim of a home invasion

If someone broke into your home while you were there what would you do? How would you protect yourself and your family?

Police CHief Tom Longs says there are a few things you can do. First he says dogs can a great deterrent. He says that because dogs can be unpredictable an intruder may feel like they are taking their life in their hands.

Chief Long also says if you have a weapon you should get it but be sure to call the police right after. You should barricade yourself inside a room to give the police time to arrive, also be sure to let the intruder know you are ready to take action.

Stand your ground law allow a person to legally use deadly force in self defense when the victim feels his or her life is being threatened.
