Protect Yourself While Walking


The following tips can help you and your family stay safer in our community:
  • Avoid walking alone at night unless absolutely necessary.
  • Stay on well lit, commonly traveled routes. Always be aware of your surroundings.
  • Avoid shortcuts and dark, isolated areas.
  • Walk purposefully and confidently. Know where you are going and project a no-nonsense image.
  • If you feel threatened, cross the street, locate an emergency phone or enter a store or place of business, even if you have just left it.
  • Have your door keys ready; carry them in your pockets not buried in a purse.
