Crime Prevention Advice Personal Safety:
• Keep valuables out of sight including mobile phones, tablets and laptops.
• Keep handbags closed. Wear over the shoulder bags, having clasps facing inwards works best.
• Cover up jewellery with a scarf or clothing.
• Be aware of your surroundings if you feel unsafe change your direction.
• Use well lit, busy streets and a route you are familiar with.
• Register your belongings with immobilise.com
• If you regularly walk home in the dark, get a personal attack alarm – they are widely available and inexpensive.
• If you regularly jog or cycle, consider varying your route and times you go out, particularly if you go alone. Try to avoid wooded areas and stick to well-lit roads, or main paths and open spaces. To ensure you stay fully alert to your surroundings, do not use headphones.
• If you have a spy hole or security chain fitted to your front or back door make sure you use them when answering the door.
• When answering the phone, simply say ‘hello’. Don’t give your name or number. If the caller claims to have the wrong number ask them to repeat the number required. Never give any information about yourself to a stranger and never say you are alone.
