                Crime Prevention/Safety Tips
Personal Safety
    •   Always be aware of your surroundings .
    •   Try to stay in well-lit areas .
    •   Walk confidently at a steady pace on the side of the street facing traffic .
    •   Walk close to the curb . Avoid doorways, bushes, and alleys .
    •   Wear clothes and shoes that give you freedom to move .
    •   Don’t walk alone at night and always avoid areas where there are few people .
    •   Be careful when people stop and ask you for directions; always reply from a distance .
    •   If you are in trouble, attract help in any way that you can . Scream, yell for help, or yell, “fire!”
    •   Keep your head . Stay as calm as possible, think rationally, and evaluate your resources and options .
    •   If ever attacked, go to a safe place and call the police . The sooner you make the report, the greater the
        chances the attacker will be caught .

Home Safety
    • Check the identification of any sales or service people before letting them in .
    • Don’t let any stranger in your home when you are alone .
    • Never give the impression that you are alone if strangers telephone or come to the door .
    • If you come home and find a door open or signs of a forced entry, don’t go in . Call the police from
      the nearest phone .
    • Keep written records of all furniture, jewelry, and electronic products . If possible, keep these records in a safe
      deposit box or fireproof safe .
    • Secure sliding glass door locks .
    • Don’t hide spare keys in mailboxes, planters, or under doormats .

Vehicle Safety
    • Close all windows, lock all doors, and take the keys with you .
    • Never hide a second set of keys anywhere on your car .
    • Never leave your car’s engine running, even if you will only be gone for a minute .
    • Park in well-lighted areas .
    • Activate any antitheft devices you have .
    • Push or recline your passenger seat forward; if you return to your car and the passenger seat has been
      returned to its normal position, chances are someone has entered your vehicle .
    • When approaching your vehicle, have your keys in hand .
    • Before you invest in any alarms; check with several established companies and decide what level of security
      fits your needs .

Travel Safety
    • If you do travel alone, leave your route and destination times with family or friends .
    • Keep your car locked at all times .
    • Keep the windows rolled up so that a person cannot reach inside . If confronted by someone on foot,
      drive away immediately, if safe to do so .
    • Make sure your car is in good working order and has plenty of gas before you drive .
    • Don’t leave packages or valuables in plain sight in your car; keep them in your trunk .
    • If you are being followed by another car, honk your horn and drive to the closest public place such as a
      police or fire station, restaurant, or gas station . Never go home if you think you are being followed .
    • If you are involved in a minor accident, do not get out of the car until fire, police, or medical assistance
      arrives . This is a favorite ploy of kidnappers and sexual battery offenders .
