Other Safety Tips to Remember:

  • When walking alone, always stay alert and tuned into your surroundings; keep your eyes up and off of your phone, iPod, etc.
  • Walk or jog in well-lit areas, and stay away from alleys
  • Please refrain from listening to headphones/earphones or talking on the phone while out alone, as this minimizes your ability to hear an approaching threat and it also advertises to a would-be thief that you may have a desirable item to steal
