  1. secure

    The legal term arrest carries always the implication of a legal offense; this is true even of arresting for debt. But one may be detained by process of law when no offense is alleged against him, as in the case of a witness who is held in a house of detention till a case comes to trial. One may be restrained of his liberty without arrest, as in an insane asylum; an individual or corporation may be restrained by injunction from selling certain property. In case of an arrest, an officer may secure his prisoner by fetters, by a locked door, or other means effectually to prevent escape. Capture is commonly used of seizure by armed force; as, to capture a ship, a fort, etc. Compare HINDER; OBSTRUCT.

    Synonyms:
    apprehend, arrest, capture, catch, detain, hold, make prisoner, restrain, seize, stop, take into custody, take prisoner

    Antonyms:
    discharge, dismiss, free, liberate, release, set free

    Preposition:
    Arrested for crime, on suspicion, by the sheriff; on, upon, or by virtue of a warrant; on final process; in execution.

How to use secure in a sentence?

  1. Sarah Zatko:

    Source code is the theory, while binary is the practice. It makes a huge difference in how secure the actual product is.

  2. Michael Loccisano/Getty:

    Opening schools in person is an extremely low bar when it comes to empowering parents and providing children with an adequate education, sending a child back to a failing government-run school that wasn't meeting their needs to begin with is unlikely to fix much of anything. The only real solution is to fund students directly and empower families to choose the education providers that best meet their needs. School choice is the only way to truly secure parental rights in education – and it would provide meaningful bottom-up accountability because families could vote with their feet. Only then will schools have real incentives to cater to the needs of families as opposed to the other way around.

  3. Martin Gauss:

    We could have waited, but we were of the opinion that we better buy them now to secure these (delivery) positions, not to risk that after the takeover somebody else takes (them), that was, for us, the rationale to say, 'Let's close it now,' because we need the first two aircraft at the end of 2019.

  4. Kenji Hashimoto:

    Given the number of Envoy pilots flowing through to American each month or leaving due to normal attrition, Envoy will not have the pilots we need to fly our 2015 schedule, Without a cost-effective pilot agreement in place, Envoy will not secure new jets and faces challenges in recruiting new pilots without the promise of a renewed fleet.

  5. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal:

    I think the American people will be pragmatic and compassionate about the people here. But I don't think they want that as part of the discussion on securing border. We need to secure the border first.
