Personal Safety Tips

 

  • Trust Your Intuition. If you feel threatened or something doesn’t feel right, take action immediately.
  • Pay close attention to your surroundings.
  • Know safe places in the areas where you live, work and play.
  • Don’t let strangers get too close to you, even if they seem to have a reason.
  • Carry as few items as possible.
  • Walk with a purpose. Know where you are going ahead of time.
  • Avoid shortcuts that take you through alleys, gangways, and other unlit, isolated areas.
  • Have a plan before you see trouble. Be prepared to cross a street or duck into a store, if needed.
  • Carry a small amount of cash, and only the credit cards that you intend to use.
  • If carrying a wallet, carry it in a front pocket.
  • Leave your expensive jewelry at home.
  • Don’t wear clothing or shoes that restrict your movement.
