Personal Safety Tips

From Community Service Officer Teresa Hayward of the Tucson Police Department

Hi Folks,
Someone asked that I post some safety tips. This is what I hand out at my apartment complex meetings. They are just a few of many, but I hope this helps:

Personal Safety Tips

Always walk with authority, displaying an air of confidence and purpose of destination. Always be alert to your surroundings.
What to Avoid While out Walking/Exercising
• Walking alone, if possible.
• Listening to loud music while wearing earphones.
• Dangling your purse.
• Displaying jewelry.
• Heavily overgrown areas (trees, weeds, shrubbery, etc.).
• Dark doorways, hallways, and parking lots.
• Alleys and little traveled/under lit side streets.
• Deserted parks and wooded areas, vacant lots and buildings.
• Warehouse and industrial areas.
• High crime rate areas.

Approaching Your Car

• Have keys ready before approaching your car.
• Look inside car before getting in; checking front and rear seat areas for intruder.
• Lock doors immediately upon entering (even before placing key in ignition).

While Driving

• Keep all doors locked.
• Keep windows rolled up, if possible.
• Never pick up hitchhikers.
• Be extremely cautious about stopping to render assistance in what appears to be emergency situations.
• Be alert to being followed by another vehicle.
• Relinquish only your car key to parking lot attendants, carwash attendants, etc. Always retain custody of house keys.

While Alone At Home

• Be highly selective in whom you admit.
• Require identification of repairmen, servicemen, etc.
• Do not allow entry if claiming to be repairman, serviceman, etc. and are not expected.
• Do not let phone caller know you are home alone.
• Keep doors and windows locked.
• Keep shades/drapes drawn after dark.

Please say safe!!
