Stay alert. Be vigilant and your know surroundings.
Don’t be taken by surprise. Be aware and be prepared.
Stand tall and walk confidently.
Don’t show fear.
Don’t look like a victim.
Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation, leave right away, if necessary get help.
Make sure all doors to the outside are metal or solid, 1 ¾" hardwood.
Make sure all doors to the outside have good, sturdy locks.
Use the locks you have. Always lock up your home when you go out, even if it’s only for a few minutes.
Secure sliding glass doors with commercially available bars or locks, or put a wooden dowel or broomstick in the door track.
Make sure your windows, especially at ground level, have good locks and use them.
Make sure all porches and other possible entrances are well-lit.
Trim any bushes or trees that hide doors or windows.
Keep ladders, tools, toys, and recreational equipment inside when you’re not using them.
Don’t hide your house keys under the doormat or in a flowerpot. It’s much wiser to give an extra key to a trusted neighbor.
Don't leave your car keys in plain view, on a desk or in a purse. If someone breaks-in, they might also take your vehicle if the keys are found.
