Below are preventative insights one should consider while walking
on the streets.

· Be aware of your surroundings, especially in isolated areas.
Familiarize yourself with street names or landmarks in case an
emergency occurs. Be cognizant of strangers standing around or
behind you.
· Avoid travelling alone on the street. Suspects generally target
lone victims.
· Avoid possessing large amount of money on your person or in your
place of business.
· Limit the use of electronics that would distract your attention
from potential dangers. If using a cellular phone, look up
occasionally to reacquaint your surroundings.
· Exercise discretion wearing high-valued jewelry or using
expensive cellular phones. Consider using hands-free earphones
allowing you to keep your cellular phone concealed while in
· If a crime occurs to you or others, be a good witness. Observe as
much detail as possible of the suspect without intervening. Your
life is more valuable than property.
· Report the crime as soon as possible by calling 911. Delayed
reporting can significantly reduce the possibility of apprehending
the suspect.
