Personal Safety

Personal safety is a concern for all of us. A lot can be achieved by just using good common sense. Be aware of your surroundings at all times, and do not place yourself in situations which might jeopardize your safety.


ON THE STREET:
Plan your route and avoid short cuts through parks, vacant lots or unlit areas.
Know where police stations or after hour stores are located.
Avoid being alone if you can. Get a friend to accompany you. If they can’t, let them know the route you’re taking. Call when you arrive.
Don’t carry large sums of money or unnecessary valuables. Use cash alternatives such as debit cards.
Don’t carry a purse; use waistbelts instead.
Don’t leave purses unattended in shopping carts or on store counters.
If someone grabs your purse, do not resist.
