Self Protection From Assault
At home, keep your doors locked when you’re alone – night or day. Don’t let strangers in. Don’t leave a door unlocked for someone planning to come later. When walking outside, dress for easy movement. Don’t weigh yourself down with a large purse or backpack. Be careful when giving information or directions to strangers. There is safety in numbers. Try to walk with a friend whenever possible. When in your car, keep your doors locked while driving. Don’t pick up hitchhikers or give rides to people you don’t know. Park in well-lighted areas whenever possible. Protect yourself when out by watching your drink and not drinking something you didn’t open yourself. If attacked, keep in mind that your goal is to escape safely. Cooperate if you think resisting could lead to further harm or endanger your life.
