Our Advisors

Here at SafeHome, we rely on a growing team of expert advisors to give our editorial team and our readers a full and accurate picture. This carefully assembled team represents the best and brightest minds in the industry. Retired burglary detectives, directors of security, and public safety consultants — we’ve recruited multiple experts across a handful of specialties.

Individually they bring a wealth of knowledge on everything from home security to identity theft and fraud. And together they form a leading panel for all things home and personal protection. Their experience speaks for itself.

SafeHome’s expert advisors collectively bring:

  • Over 200 years in law enforcement and security
  • 20,000+ cases of burglary and theft
  • Thousands of criminal investigations and home invasion cases
  • And more

When you read our reviews, guides, and recommendations, you can trust that you’re getting the facts from a reputable source.
