Personal Safety

  • Use safe, direct, and well-lit routes
  • Stay alert to your surroundings—don’t “tune out” by using your phone, iPod or other electronic devices
  • When walking, look confident and purposeful
  • Walk with a friend if possible—particularly at night
  • Carry your keys and money in a pocket, not in a purse or backpack
  • If you are being followed, go to where there are people and call 911
