It’s sad you even need to find a personal safety alarm for self-defense. It’s okay to admit it. That’s the world we live in. There’s no fighting it or denying it. The best thing you can do is protect yourself. While it would be nice if the police were everywhere, Robocop existed (one day, maybe), or Batman prowled the streets, it’s just not the reality.
Dangers lurk on every corner and down every dark alley, and some of us don’t have time to sign up for Krav Maga. We need other solutions. Thankfully, there are plenty of personal safety alarms to choose from. So, whether you’re out running or walking down a dark city street alone, here are Top 10 Best Personal Safety Alarms for Self Defense.
