Personal Safety

Being aware of your surroundings. What is the landscape around you? Are you in a well traveled area, or on a sparsely populated street, hidden from view? Are those around you walking with purpose, or are they just “hanging around”, watching others? Trust your gut feelings. If you feel something’s not right, it probably isn’t right. Keep in well populated areas. Don’t consider walking through an alley to save a block of walking. The exercise will do you good, and who knows who, or what, is in that alley? Walk with purpose. Look confident. Know where you’re going, and if you get lost, make it look like you know where you are. Confidence is power. Make sure everyone around you knows that you’re aware of them, and aware of your surroundings. By the way, a great way to do this is to carry a stun gun and learn to "pop it" while you walk. This will let everyone know that you are "armed" and aware of being watched. If you’re not easily surprised, you’ve won “half the battle” already. If you’re being followed, or see a person or group ahead you want to avoid, make changes in your path. Cross the street (and walk on the other side), Walk in another direction, or duck into a well populated place (a busy store, restaurant etc – someplace you may easily loose yourself in, and leave sight of the other person or group). Quicken your pace. In social situations (in public), or when otherwise distracted (at the ATM, pumping gas into your vehicle, etc), work on keeping an eye on your surroundings. Don’t become so immersed in your activity that you loose touch with your surroundings. Know your neighborhood. Identify “safe havens”, (places with people that are well lighted) you can go to if you feel threatened. When walking adjacent to a two way street, consider walking on the side of the street against traffic (IE on a west bound roadway, walk east bound). It is harder for suspects in vehicles to stop and commit a crime if their victim is walking against the way they are driving. Keep your arms and hands free. Don’t carry groceries in your arms, for example; use a cart. The more encumbered you are, the less you can move and escape. If possible walk in groups. The more people, the less likely a criminal is to strike. Have your keys with you when you’re approaching your parked vehicle, or your home or office. If you see suspicious people, avoid your destination and go to a “safe haven”. When walking, stay away from hidden doorways, shrubs, and other areas that criminals may hide when stalking their prey.
