Finding a certified, experienced locksmith is no easy task. Sure, dozens of companies out there will dispatch an indifferent "technician" that offers "quick" solutions when you lose your keys. But when it comes to protecting your home and your business, cheap locks and part-time contractors just won't cut it. Arrowhead Lock & Safe stands out as the most trusted name in security solutions and products in Georgia in an industry known for poor service and mediocre locksmiths.

Though home appraisers may disagree, the value of your home isn't defined by the four walls and roofs that cover a property. The real value of your home lies within those walls where your family eats, sleeps, and plays.

When your home has lackluster locks and minimal protection, the things that you hold closest to your heart are at risk.

Your home is only as safe as the locks that you have on your doors. As your locks age or when you are the victim of a security threat, you may feel that it's time to install new locks on the doors of your home. This can be long, laborious, and complicated for the average homeowner. For that reason, many clients trust Arrowhead Lock & Safe to handle the hard work for them.

If you are a business owner in Georgia, you have the weighty responsibility of protecting your patrons and securing your businesses' assets. The most common way for entrepreneurs to keep their business safe is by having a commercial locksmith in Smyrna install quality, reliable locks on every entry point of your storefront. But, unfortunately, many business owners take the least amount of effort necessary when it comes to protecting their business.
Whether you own several franchise locations or have a single storefront, it only takes one break-in to make you realize the importance of installing high-quality locks for your commercial property. Sadly, at that point, it's too late - your ability to provide for your family and pay your bills has been compromised. For that reason alone, it's always better to be proactive about your businesses' security rather than reactive.
At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, our commercial door lock services are designed to ensure that your assets and your customers are protecting 24-hours a day, seven days a week. We will always take the time to walk you through your options, explaining the pros and cons of each security solution so that you can make an informed decision. With a wide range of security offerings and a reliable team of commercial locksmith experts on your side, choosing the right security setup is easy, efficient, and affordable.
Installing high-quality door locks for your business is one of the best ways to protect your assets and your commercial property. At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, we offer many commercial door lock options from the best brands in our industry. From reliable maintenance service on your current Grade 3 locks to new Grade 1 commercial door lock installation, our team of commercial locksmiths is ready to help.
If your businesses' locks are old and need proper maintenance or corrective repair services, it's always best to work with a team of experts. From re-keying services to fixing stuck or broken locks, our commercial locksmiths are only a phone call away.
Commercial alarms for businesses are more complex than their residential relatives, and for a good reason. Our cutting-edge alarm systems are great for preventing and interrupting break-ins, notifying the authorities, and act as an important addition to any business that wants enhanced security.
A commercial-grade CCTV system installed by Arrowhead Lock & Safe allows you to monitor all activities that take place under your businesses' roof. Having security cameras installed around your business gives you added peace of mind and evidence for the police if a break-in occurs. Having visible security cameras can also help deter criminals and prevent suspicious activity from ever taking place. With remote monitoring capability on your smart device, you can check in on your storefront any time of the night or day, from just about any location.
Having the ability to control every one of your businesses' locks is a proactive, cost-efficient way to protect your customers and your assets. With a commercial-grade control access system from Arrowhead Lock & Safe, business owners can easily restrict certain areas within their store, prevent physical key duplication, record entry history, and even simplify employee turnover.
Entryways can be especially vulnerable, but Arrowhead Lock and Safe know how to select and install the best doors for your business. When you add remote control access features, business owners can open other structures like motorized fences, large parking gates, and even barriers.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grading system was developed years ago to standardize a testing procedure to measure the durability and strength of a door lock. This grading system applies to both residential and commercial door locks. Composed of three different grades, the ANSI grading system gives homeowners and business owners a good idea of lock quality and reliability. ANSI examines six different qualities to determine a lock's grade:
These locks offer the highest level of security and are most often used by institutions like hospitals, schools, and even museums. These locks also have the highest life expectancy, though they can be much more complex and require an expert residential or commercial locksmith in cityname to install. In today's day and age, many more homeowners are opting for Grade 1 locks (like electronic locks) for the most peace of mind. This classification of lock must hold up against 800,000 cycles, six door strikes and a 360-pound weight test.
These locks are great for residential areas with more foot traffic, like a door that leads to an apartment complex or suite of rooms. These locks can also suffice for small businesses that need a higher level of security than Grade 3 locks. Use these locks when you want to secure access to areas with valuable equipment or sensitive documents. This classification of lock requires 400,000 cycles, four door strikes, and a 250-pound weight test.
This grade of lock is best suited for residential purposes and is considered standard door hardware. This kind of lock is the least expensive and should never be used in a high-traffic area like a lobby or storefront. However, these locks would be suitable for areas without much foot traffic like storage closets or areas without expensive merchandise. Because these locks are easiest to bypass, consider upgrading your Grade 3 locks with anti-bump and anti-pick technology. This classification of lock requires 200,000 lock cycles, two door strikes, and a 150-pound weight test.
A famous animator and movie director once said: "The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing." This quote rings especially true when it comes to protecting your home or business with the best security solutions in Georgia.

The United States Association of Blind Athletes issued the following press release announcing that the Southeast Regional Goalball Tournament will be held at the City of Smyrna Community Center starting this Friday, and that 2016 silver medalist Matt Simpson of Smyrna will be competing in the event:

CHEROKEE COUNTY, GA — Two candidates are running for Cobb Board Of Education District 4 in the May 24 General Primary Election.
Patch asked candidates to answer questions about their campaigns and will be publishing candidate profiles as the primary draws near.
Catherine Pozniak is running for Cobb Board Of Education District 4.
Dr. Catherine Pozniak
Cobb County Board of Education, Post 4
Kincaid Elementary, Daniell Middle School, Sprayberry High School Class of 1997, University of Sydney First Class Honors, University of Cambridge - Master's, Harvard University - Doctor of Education Leadership
Educator - 18 years
Does anyone in your family work in politics or government?
Previous public office, appointive or elective
Executive Director, State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (Louisiana)Assistant State Superintendent, Louisiana Department of Education
Why are you seeking this office?
I am a Cobb County graduate and educator running for school board at perhaps the most critical time in the history of K-12 public education. I am seeking this post to bring my experience leading large-scale education systems to my home district.
Please complete this statement: The single most pressing issue facing my constituents is ___, and this is what I intend to do about it.
The most pressing issue facing our education system is developing and implementing a plan to ensure *all* of Cobb's students are ready for college, career, and/or military service upon graduation. The foundation of this plan should be a coherent academic strategy grounded in high-quality curricula and robust professional learning opportunities for teachers and instructional staff. As a member of the board, I will work to ensure Cobb deploys its resources - including its budget - in service of this plan.
What are the major differences between you and the other candidates seeking this post?
I have the most expertise and years of experience in education. I have been an instructional leader, and I lead a practice focused on education finance. I understand how children learn and will make informed decisions about how the district spends its money to support teaching and learning.
If you are challenging an incumbent, in what way has the current officeholder failed the community?
As the board chair, my opponent leads with partisanship and a political agenda that does not serve the families of Cobb County. He has cast the deciding vote to restrict student and teacher voice as well as the constituency of three democratically elected board members. He has squandered the school district's money to his own political gain. He extended the superintendent's contract -- worth over $700K annually -- until 2025 without an evaluation or public discussion. Parents, schools, and community members testify consistently that my opponent has been chronically unresponsive to his constituents. Overall, he has treated Cobb's students and families with indifference, he has acted in his own self-interest, and his leadership has eroded public accountability for taxpayer dollars.
What other issues do you intend to address during your campaign?
Broadly, my campaign is focused on the district's academic strategy and accompanying budget, especially its use of $250 million of federal relief money that could set the school district on a dramatically improved trajectory. As part of this, my campaign will focus on literacy and special education services - two critical areas where Cobb County School District is particularly vulnerable.
What accomplishments in your past would you cite as evidence you can handle this job?
I served as an assistant state superintendent, overseeing an education budget of $5.5 billion. I continue to work with districts and states across the country on local, state, and federal education policy matters. I have been direct commissioned into the U.S. Army Reserve to served as an Education Officer because of my expertise in public education systems. I am a certified teacher and hold a superintendent endorsement. But my most important credential that qualifies me for this job is my time as a classroom teacher. From first-hand experience, I know what it takes to teach a child to read. I have felt the urgency of every minute of instruction. And I have experienced the difference between a system that supports learning and a system that stands in the way. Plus, anyone who can hold command over 25 kindergartners could probably run the world.
What is the best advice anyone ever gave you?
Learn by doing.
Is there anything else you would like voters to know about yourself and your positions?
I'd love to hear from you, whether you are a student, a parent, a teacher, a voter, or whoever. Hearing about your experiences and concerns helps me develop smarter, more responsive positions. You can submit comments via my website www.catherinepozniak.com. Thank you!

Among Ukraine’s millions of war refugees and internally displaced people, its people receive messages of hope and pastoral support through LOGOS TV, a media ministry of the Byzantine Catholic Church. With programming that includes livestream videos of liturgies and prayer services, news of the Church’s response to the pastoral needs of the victims and refugees of war, and catechetical videos sharing the teachings and traditions of the Eastern Catholic Church, LOGOS TV is connecting those displaced by war with the Church throughout the region.
Shortly before war broke out in Ukraine, the Catholic Communication Campaign granted LOGOS TV funds to expand its satellite transmission to reach well beyond Slovakia and western Ukraine. This has allowed LOGOS TV to connect Eastern-rite Catholics throughout Eastern Europe with important news. As I write, one of LOGOS TV’s news stories, for example, features Archbishop Ján Babjak, metropolitan of Presov, Slovakia, welcoming Ukrainian refugees at a Catholic youth center.
In our universal Church, the gifts of everyday Catholics in the United States have helped assure the many displaced Ukrainians that the Church stands with them, thanks to the Catholic Communication Campaign.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Catholic Communication Campaign works to spread the Gospel through the media in all its forms. Its work is funded by an annual collection which many dioceses will take up on May 28-29. Through contributions to the collection, the Church is able to share the love of Jesus at home and abroad.
Half of every dollar donated to the parish’s collection remains in the donor’s diocese for local Catholic communications outreach. The other half supports national and international initiatives to aid the Church in communicating the Gospel message.
In 2020, that support included creating infrastructure for parishes to stream Mass online as we all abruptly faced closures in our parishes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Other local efforts supported by the collection include helping diocesan newspapers or magazines, website updates and outreach campaigns, or Mass and television programs to reach the faithful and share the good news.
The Catholic Communication Campaign distributed more than $3 million in national and international grants in 2021. In addition to traditional media, the Catholic Communication Campaign works to share the good news through digital media and other communications initiatives.
One such example is the ongoing development of an app to help seafarers and mariners, who may spend months far from home and family, maintain a spiritual life during voyages and find pastoral care in port. Thanks to the generosity of Catholics to the collection, the Apostleship of the Sea of the United States of America will soon update and redesign its Stella Maris app with a new feature to help cruise ship passengers locate a Catholic chaplain while at sea.
Another example of the CCC funds at work can be found in a remote region of Bolivia where Radio Pio XII’s 20-year-old transmitter is on the verge of failing. Since 1959, the radio station, operated by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, has stood boldly for the human rights and dignity of indigenous people when they have been under violent attack. The gifts of Catholics to the Catholic Communication Campaign collection are helping to replace the old transmitter with one that is far more powerful and can share the Good News more broadly.
I hope you will consider giving generously when your parish takes up the collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign on May 28-29 — or whenever this collection is taken in your diocese. #iGiveCatholicTogether also accepts funds for the CCC, which gives an option to those who wish to support the program but are unable to give at Mass.
Your gift benefits your local diocese and their communication efforts, and it will supply far more than technology — it will spread the faith, hope and love of Jesus Christ, and of his Church, to people and places where the word of God is needed most.

Result Clinches a Spot in the Championship Match Against Australia on Tuesday, March 17, but USA-AUS Will Close Out Group Play on Sunday, March 15 with a Battle for First Place in the Group Before that Game
SALOU, Spain (May 14, 2022) - The U.S. Para Women’s National Team battled to a 1-1 draw against a skillful and spirited Japan team, who need a win to stay alive for a chance at the finals. With the draw, the U.S. clinches a sport in the inaugural 2022 IFCPF World Cup final for women’s football scheduled for Tuesday, March 17.
After a scoreless first half in which the U.S. outshot Japan 13-3, the team finally broke through on a fantastic goal that saw second-half sub Joey Martin (Smyrna, Ga.) hit a perfect cross from the right flank that was expertly finished from the middle of the penalty area into the lower left corner of the goal by Catarina Guimarães, her 10th tally of the tournament.
The U.S. was in control for the entire match, but an unlucky own goal on a flighted ball into the penalty area tied the match. U.S. defender Cassidy Leake (Murrieta, Ga.) leapt to the defend the awkward ball, but it defelcted off her chest and then unluckily looped into the goal over goalkeeper Rebecca Ostrander (Carson City, Nev.) who had entered the game in the second half.
For the first three-quarters of the game, defender Annie Wickett (Frederick, Md.) led the USA’s defensive efforts in goal, where she started in place of Emily Lauritsen (Omaha) who was held out to recuperate.
The team’s starting line-up against Japan also featured forward Leah Glaser (Montclair, N.J.), midfielder Jesslyn Kuhnel (Panama City, Fla.) and defender Michelle Cross (San Diego), who, along with Guimarães, is the only player to start all three games.
With the team scheduled to play their fourth game in four days on Sunday, head coach Tricia Taliaferro also rested University of South Florida collegiate standout Kat Renick, the team’s captain. Renick scored five goals and six assists in going the distance in the USA’s 14-0 victory over the Netherlands on May 13.
The U.S. is now tied with Japan for second place in group play with 7 points, behind Australia’s 9 points. Because of the USA’s insurmountable goal differential (as the tournament caps differential margins at plus-10 goals per game, regardless of the actual score) the U.S. will not finish lower than second place, no matter the result against Australia. The U.S. is currently 2-0-1 with a +20 goal differential, while Japan is 2-1-1 with a +7 goal differential.
A win against Australia in their final group match on Sunday, May 15 (at 12:45 p.m. local / 6:45 a.m. ET) will give the USA first place. A draw will give the group crown to Australia, with the final between the two teams taking place on Tuesday, regardless of the outcome.
