SAFETY TIPS TO USE WHEN EXITING A PARKING LOT:

  • Stay alert and walk briskly with your head up and your shoulders back. Criminals look for easy marks, such as people who are slouched over, preoccupied or fumbling with packages.
  • Avoid texting or talking on the phone and walking so that you can see where you’re going and who is coming toward you.
  • Know your surroundings. Look around the parking lot and your vehicle for suspicious people. If you notice odd behavior, inform security or the police immediately.
  • Walk with others when possible.
  • Walk in a well-lit area.
  • Remove your headphones or earbuds while walking through a parking lot. Be aware of noises and movements.
  • Have your keys in your hand and ready to open your vehicle.

How to keep safe at home

Your home should be a safe place. Most callers to your home will be people you know, but you need to be careful when people you don’t know call at your door.

  • Dead bolts are excellent—use a keyed rather than thumb latch model and keep the key close but not in the lock. Use this deadbolt each time you close your door.
  • If you have a storm or screen door, make sure the locking devise is working. Lock this door each time you use it.
  • Put a Sticker (proclaiming you use a security system—even if you don’t) on you front door
  • Before you open the door—look through the peep hole—call out to the person
  • Put a door chain on before opening the front door. If you don’t have one, ask the caller to pass their ID card through the letter box or under the door or hold it up to the peephole–
  • DO NOT BE AFRAID TO TELL SOMEONE YOU REFUSE TO OPEN THE DOOR

 

Facing a criminal

  • Compare the assailant to yourself in terms of height and weight.
  • Make as many mental notes as you can, but don’t rely on your memory for too long. Write down as much as you can as soon as possible.
  • Before you become a victim, practice describing passers-by when you’re out shopping or enjoying an afternoon walk. The more you practice, the better you’ll do if you ever find yourself the victim of A crime. Practicing can be a family game or an exercise for employees.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings, always keep your head up and always make eye contact with passers-by.
  • Don’t resist a robber or purse-snatcher.
  • Don’t panic.”The most important thing is to help with your own safety,” “Remain calm. As hard as it is, the benefit of that is that anything they take from you can be replaced. But if you panic, then you run the risk of having some physical harm done to you. And quite frankly, when you panic, you’re not going to be able to provide as much information.”

 

Talking with police

  • The first police officers responding will want basic information so they can begin searching for the assailant. They will want to know gender, race, general clothing description, direction of travel and distinguishing marks to begin with.
  • Officers then will ask a series of questions that will help victims describe the perpetrators systematically from top to bottom.
  • Victims will be asked if they know the person’s name, race, sex, age, height, weight, hair color, eye color and complexion. They’ll also be asked about facial hair, scars, marks, tattoos or limps.
  • Police will want to know about hats, glasses, ties, shirts, coats, trousers, socks and shoes. An accurate clothing description is important.
  • If the robber fled in a vehicle, police will ask for the year, make, model, color, body style, license plate number and direction of travel.
  • If the robber was armed, officers will ask for a description of the weapon. If victims are unsure of the difference between a revolver, a pistol or a shotgun, officers usually have on hand drawings of common weapon types for victims to look at.
