Being safe requires making wise personal choices that help prevent you from becoming a victim of crime.  Follow these tips to be safe while out of the house: 

  • Avoid walking alone at night. If you must walk alone at night, stick to well-travelled and well-lit streets.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, and walk confidently.
  • Carry only essential items such as an ID, credit or debit card, and a cell phone. Avoid carrying cash as much as possible.
  • Dress so you can run or walk easily to avoid an attack.
  • Do not display target items such as money, cell phones, or Ipods.
  • Avoid passing close to ambush points such as bushes or tall shrubbery. 
  • Avoid cell phone usage while walking alone unless you are in a safe area.
  • If you are attacked or confronted by a robber, don’t fight, comply with the suspects demands. Obtain a good description and IMMEDIATELY call the police when you are safe to do so. Do not call friends and family first.
  • If an attacker tries to take you to another location, do everything you can to avoid being transported somewhere else.
  • If you have been drinking and are intoxicated, never accept a ride from someone you do not know.
