Question and answer
What measures can you take to better protect yourself from crime?
Protection from Street Crime Do not walk alone on dark, deserted streets. Keep your wallet or purse where pickpockets can’t reach it. Never carry a large sum of money. [ Hold your purse firmly, and do not leave it unattended on a counter or in a grocery cart. Or consider putting money in your pocket so it won’t be as easy to grab as purse straps. If someone grabs your purse, do not put
yourself at risk by resisting. If you are going out alone at night, let a friend or family member know your plans. When out alone, keep a whistle handy and hold your keys in your hand while walking. Lock your car door, whether you are inside the car or not. Avoid waiting at deserted bus stops. Walk to the next bus stop where others may be waiting. Also, consider taking a taxi and asking the driver to wait until you are inside your destination. If you are riding the bus, be aware of anyone who might be staring at you. You can prevent trouble by anticipating it and asking the driver for help. When planning to be away from home, never hide a door key under the doormat, behind the shutter or in a mailbox. These are familiar places to a burglar. A neighbor or family member can keep an extra key for you. When at home, keep your shades pulled at night and while you are undressing. Be cautious as to who knows you are alone. To avoid unwanted telephone calls, do not list your first name or address in the phone book or on your mailbox. ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦CHAPTER 14 Protecting Yourself from Crime and Abuse Don’t pay your bills by leaving your payments in a flagged mailbox. If you try to resist while being victimized, you may be injured. Other options are: sit down so you are not knocked down, make noise, whistle or call for help. In any case, tell the police as soon as possible. ]
