My name is
Susan Bartelstone and I'm a certified crime prevention and
personal safety specialist.
Back when I
was 19 years old, I had a bad breakup with a guy that
involved both physical and emotional bruises. I became
determined to learn how to protect myself and now have more
than 17 years combined training in WWII Combatives, self
defense and martial arts. And, since then, I've deterred
five extremely dangerous criminal encounters, fought my way
out of a surprise attack, and taught safety skills to
thousands of women and men.
You might have seen me on
The Today Show or America’s Most Wanted, in
Self Magazine or a long and varied list of other media.
Check out the
Press Room page
for a sampling of my appearances.

host of a personal safety talk radio show on the
internet radio station. With an
optimistic perspective on a sober subject, I present hot crime topics, the
people making the headlines, trends and legal developments
that are going to impact all of our lives in the future and
true crime stories that demand to be heard—whether
heartbreaking, infuriating, inspiring or just plain weird.
It'd be a crime not to listen!
