Personal Safety

Personal Safety

 Basic Street Sense

  •     Wherever you are – on the street, in an office building or shopping mall, driving, waiting for  a bus or subway – stay alert and tuned in to your surroundings.

  •     Send the message that you’re calm, confident, and know where you’re going.

  •     Trust your instincts. If something or someone makes you uneasy, avoid the person or leave.

  •     Know the neighborhoods where you live and work. Check out the locations of police and fire stations, public telephones, hospitals, or stores that are open late.

  •     Look confident. Walk with your head up, as if you know where you are going. Keep your hands free – don’t walk about with them in your pockets.

  •     Keep to well-used roads. Don’t use alleyways or short cuts.

  •     Think ahead and plan your journey, avoiding deserted areas

  •     In the dark, always stick to well-lit areas.

  •     If you think you are being followed, cross the road.

  •     If you start to be frightened, try not to panic. Always try to think around situations.


Public Transport

  •    Use well-lighted, busy stops.

  •    If someone harasses you, don’t be embarrassed. Look for help around you.

  •    Watch who gets off with you. If you feel uneasy, walk directly to a place where there are other people.


Travel Tips

  •    It is always worth letting someone know where you are going, the route you intend to take and when you expect to return. Plan your journeys – work out how to get there and back.

  •    Put aside enough money for the return fare.

  •    If you lose your fare money or ticket, speak to the driver/guard/ticket officer and explain. Carry some identification on you to prove that you are genuine.

  •    Never be tempted to walk home alone, especially if it’s dark or you are unsure of the area.


If Someone Tries To Rob You

  • Report the crime to the police. Try to describe the attacker accurately. Your actions can help prevent others from becoming victims
