This list of personal security tips will help secure you in your daily life – while hopefully inspiring more awareness while you are out-and-about (and everywhere else).
Always be alert and aware of your surroundings and of the people around you.
Make casual eye contact with people when walking.
Do not be easily distracted or take your eyes off of someone you feel looks suspicious in a possibly dangerous situation.
Always carry ID and enough cash with you in case you need it for an emergency or to call a taxi, etc.
Whenever possible, buddy-up to walk out to dark parking lots.
Always inform family or friends if you are traveling, and give them itinerary dates and locations you will visit.
Try to stay away from the brush or trees when walking or running. Always be prepared to run away from an attacker and scream.
