YARDLEY, Pa., Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeShield Security (, the first national, all-digital, professional-grade and professionally-monitored wireless home security system, has just posted a five-minute personal interview ( with law enforcement expert John Timoney to share an insider's look at how burglars and criminals case homes and plan break-ins, as well as how to keep your home from becoming a target. Named "America's Top Cop" by Esquire Magazine, Timoney strongly urges viewers to take precautions before a home invasion occurs, because afterwards will be too late.

When asked about the basic steps people can take to protect themselves and their families, Timoney says: "Well clearly, if you're on the street, always have your wits about you and take nothing for granted. At home you should take as many steps as humanly possible to safeguard your family. Start with the minimum - install a good door lock system that will withstand a picking. Then invest in a technologically-advanced home security system like LifeShield, which will deter burglars and prevent break-ins. And for that matter, get a dog too."

Throughout the video, Timoney emphasizes: "A LifeShield home alarm system is the best way to protect your property and your life's possessions. It's well worth the investment and it will help safeguard your home. Unfortunately, there are people who wait until after the first burglary to consider a home security system. When I would talk to them they'd say, 'Well, that's it. Now I'm getting a home security system.' But it would have been so much smarter to get the system ahead of time! Again, whether we like it or not - criminals are smart, and they're targeting the most vulnerable locations. They know their trade and they're experienced. But they're going to resist anything that makes their job more difficult, or that raises the likelihood of getting apprehended and going to jail - especially a home security system."

"Understanding the criminal mind is the first step to defending our homes against break-ins. But the best defense is a good offense. Having John Timoney as an advisor to the business helps us improve on product development by revealing the weaknesses in traditional home security systems so we don't make those same mistakes," said Louis Stilp, founder and COO of LifeShield. "The LifeShield advantage is a system with flexible, wireless installation options, three layers of backup protection, faster response time and technology applications that can deliver information to you anywhere you are in the world. No other home security provider can deliver the level of protection that a LifeShield system can, plain and simple."

Timoney, now serving as Chairman of the LifeShield Law Enforcement Advisory Council, is a seasoned law enforcement executive known for his success in fighting crime while serving as Chief of the Miami Police Department (2003-2010), Commissioner of the Philadelphia Police Department (1998-2003), and a variety of positions within the New York Police Department (1967-1998), including its Chief of Department and First Deputy Commissioner.
