The Basic Rules
Stay alert. Be aware of others and threatening situations.
Maintain a confident posture / attitude.
Have a game plan.
Trust your instincts.
Use well lighted and busy streets. Try to avoid deserted streets, vacant lots, alleys, construction sites, and wooded areas.
Always take the safest route even if it is a little longer.
Walk facing traffic so you can see approaching cars.
Don't flaunt expensive jewelry and clothing.
Wallets should be kept in an inside pocket.
If a purse must be carried, make sure to keep it close to your body and keep a firm grip on it.
Don't wear headphones. They keep you from hearing what is going on around you.
Don't overburden yourself with packages and groceries. They make it harder to react to a situation.
Don't let passersby distract you. Criminals sometimes work in pairs. One may ask you for directions or fake an injury while the other is stealing from you.
When using a pay phone, stay alert. Keep the phone call short and simple. Be attentive of your surroundings.
