These stories are horrendous and terrifying and most of them have one thing in common.... the door was forced open ! Another fact is no home was ever invaded/burglarized through a Gibraltdoor! Check them out online and watch the video, How does your door stack up?So its just a mater of time before the next subhuman lowlife does this again . Where will it happen? My family and their safety is not something to gamble with , knowing that 85% of these home invasions happen through the door I secured my door with a home invasion proof door,Gibraltdoor is the best solution to properly secure your home . a friend reccomended the Gibraltdoor to me and I put one on my front door and I put another on a closet and created a safe room.The Gibraltdoor is online and their video of the police trying to get through it with a battering ram is a must see!This is a new product they are east coast based but will ship , be proactive and secure your doors!

It's time for the mayor and city council to start asking our police chief hard questions It's obvious that thieves are coming to NPB because of the value of goods stolen. But it's also obvious the number of burglaries are increasing simply because they're getting away with it. This city has a large PD, a CSI unit, police dog, excellent equipment If the PD was a commercial business that wasn't doing well we'd be looking for a new CEO. Maybe it's time to tell the chief to fix it or move on. In any event, citizens should be aware that their homes and valuables are not safe in Newport Beach at the present time.
