Security on the Street

Safety on Foot

  • Stay in well-lighted, busy areas. Avoid walking alone and avoid known trouble spots.

 

  • When you carry a purse, hold it close to your body rather than by the handles. Do not wrap purse straps around your wrist, because you can get hurt in a struggle.

 

  • Carry only what you need in a purse or wallet, not everything you have.

 

  • Avoid using shortcuts through dark alleys, fields, or vacant lots.

 

  • If you think you're being followed, cross the street and change directions a few times. Go quickly to a well-lighted place with lots of people. Do not go home. You don't want an attacker to know where you live.

 

Safety On Wheels

  • Keep your car in good running condition.

 

  • Always roll up the windows and lock car doors.

 

  • Avoid parking in isolated areas.  Be especially alert in lots and underground parking garages.

 

  • Don't pick up hitchhikers.

 

  • If you think someone is following you, don't head home.  Drive to the nearest police or fire station, gas station, or other open business to get help.
