3 Basic Rules
Stay Alert. Keep your mind on your surroundings, who’s in front of you and who’s behind you.
Stand Tall. Walk purposefully, and make quick eye contact with people around you.
Trust Your Instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation, leave.
• Exterior doors should all have deadbolt locks.
• Front doors should have a wide-angle peep·hole installed.
• Close window shades and curtains after dark.
• Use all exterior lighting at night.
• If a stranger asks to use your phone, Do not let them in. Offer to make a call for them.
• Ask for photo ID from service or delivery people before letting them in. If you are the least bit worried, call the company to verify.
• If you return home to find doors or windows open or tampered with, do not go in! Go to a neighbor’s home, call the police and wait there until the police arrive.
• Be sure your street address number is large, clear of obstruction, and well lighted so
emergency responders can find your home quickly, day or night. Do not use script writing to display your house number.
• Do not hide keys in mailboxes, planters, or under doormats. Instead, leave an extra set of keys with a trusted neighbor or friend.
In Your Car
• Carry a cell phone with you.
• Have a first aid kit in your car.
• Carry jumper cables in your car.
• Never rely entirely on a GPS for directions.
• Carry a current map (of area you live, US map) in your car.
• Look inside your car before entering and always have your keys in your hand as you approach your car.
• When entering and exiting your vehicle, always lock the door.
• Drive with all doors locked.
• Never pick up hitchhikers.
• If you have car trouble in a dark area, raise the hood, lock yourself inside the car, and call for assistance.
• If you suspect you are being followed, drive to the nearest gas station, police station, or fire station and blow your hom. Try to get the car’s license number and description.
• Park in well lighted areas, if possible.
On The Street
• Avoid walking, jogging, or biking alone at night unless absolutely necessary.
• Plan the safest route to your destination. Choose well lighted, busy streets and avoid short cuts through parks, vacant lots, or dark areas.
• Vary your route and schedule.
• Consider not wearing stereo headphones. Hearing what is around you is as important as seeing what is around you.
• If you suspect you are being followed on foot, cross the street and head for the nearest well lighted, populated area. Walk quickly or run to a house or store to call the police.
• If you are being followed by someone in a car, change direction immediately and make an attempt to get the license number of the car.
• Do you have to work late? Make sure there are others in the building. Ask someone – a colleague or security guard – to walk you to
your car or transit stop when you leave.
• Try to use ATM’s in the daytime. Have your card in hand and do not approach the machine if you are uneasy about people nearby.
• Do not overburden yourself with packages and a bulky purse.
• Carry only what you will need in a store. Cash, debit card, checkbook and a cell phone should be all that you will need.
Leave purses in your car, out of sight.
