Personal Security Law and Legal Definition
Personal security is a general condition that occurs after adequate efforts are taken to deter, delay, and provide warning before possible crime, if such warning occurs, to summon assistance, and prepare for the possibility of crime in a constructive manner.
Personal security aims to protect people from physical violence, domestic abuse, or from predatory adults.
The following is an example of a case law on personal security:
The concept of personal security involves protection from personal harm rather than protection from an invasion of privacy. [Mergenthaler v. Commonwealth State Employes' Retirement Board, 33 Pa. Commw. 237, 244 (Pa. Commw. Ct. 1977)].
