SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — The county Sheriff's Department is offering free in-home safety inspections to San Diegans in their patrol areas.

On Thursday, 10News tagged along for an inspection at Robin and Mike Judd's home in Santee.

"It's a concern, in today's world, security, how safe are you? And you can never be too safe," Robin said.

Crime prevention specialists Mike Mateo and Monica Cordero spent about an hour inside the home, pointing out potential flaws concerning locks, lighting, and outdoor decorations that could be used to break windows.

The duo also gave information on crime prevention and neighborhood watch programs to use as preventative measures to local crime.

To arrange for an in-home inspection, San Diegans can call their local sheriff's substation and ask for crime prevention.
