  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times
  • Do not get into someone’s car even if they display a weapon. It is better to fight back in the street where help is closer at hand and other people may hear your calls for help. 
  • Walk confidently and don’t avoid eye contact 
  • Don’t let strangers into your ‘space.’ Keep plenty of distance between yourself and people you don’t wish to approach you. 
  • Don’t stop to talk with strangers asking for directions or other types of help as this can be a ploy to get close for an attack. 
  • If you feel you are in danger or being followed, call 9-1-1 
  • If grabbed, fight back and make as much noise as possible. 
  • Use the buddy system when walking after dark. You should know the person you are walking with well enough to trust them. 
  • Walk in lighted areas as much as possible and don’t walk too close to bushes, alleyways or other places where attackers can conceal themselves
