# Kentucky Danger Zone

According to the most recent FBI Crime Report, the violent crime rate in Kentucky is 44% lower than the national average. Sometimes the "danger zone" doesn't mean crime, in this case it is education. The older these school aged kids get, the more likely the crime rates will increase due to lack of knowledge. We have to educate our kids to teach them the right way from the start, because without knowledge crime is what they fall into to survive.

**JUSTIFEYED LLC**

Some of these areas are safer than others, but we are trying to show you that crimes exits EVERYWHERE. What we learned from speaking with Tim Wagner of ABC 36 in Lexington KY, is that he doesn't believe crime is that bad that Justifeyed is needed. In fact he stated they already have something similar to Justifeyed. However upon further review this system is failing. Please understand what Justifeyed can do for this state and how much it truly is needed. Believing crime is not a big problem is the same as standing back and watching it happen.
