Walking out on the Streets

There are plenty of things in our communities that people need to be aware of
when out walking around.  Inclement weather, safety hazards, and crime can ruin
anyone's day/night out.

Please follow these tips to keep you safe while out on the streets:

  • Always be aware of your surroundings

  • Take a familiar route when going to a store or friend's house

  • If going to a friend's house, ask them to meet you halfway

  • Carry your purse out in front of you.  Do not strap it around one of your
    shoulders

  • Avoid walking by yourself.  Walking in a group deters crime; for the most part

  • Stay out of the dark, isolated areas

  • Avoid short-cuts that take you off the street/sidewalks.  Do not use alley ways
    and back driveways

  • Do not get into any vehicle unless you know that person

  • Have a cell phone on you (not in purse) in case trouble arises

  • Avoid using your cell phone (texting, playing game) when walking around
