Women Walking Safely!

Women have to be smart when they are walking outside. Taking a few extra precautions can reduce the chances of becoming a victim of a crime. Here are a few tips:

  • Stay Alert – Be aware of the entire environment around you. If you wear headphones, keep the volume low enough that you can hear what’s going on around you.

  • ALWAYS walk facing traffic.

  • Avoid isolation – Walk in areas where there are other people.

  • Tell someone where you will be walking and when you will be back.

  • Carry identification and don’t wear jewelry.

  • Carry a noisemaker such as a whistle or personal alarm.

  • Best of all — Walk with a Friend!
