Away From Home2

It's always better to be safe rather than sorry - here are some simple changes you can make to decrease your chances of becoming a victim of crime:

  • Where possible, don’t walk around at night on your own. If you have to, walk with purpose and direction, try to stay in well-lit, crowded areas, and try not to get your phone out as it makes you, and your phone, an easy target for thieves. 
  • Do not be over-protective over your belongings; you can get a new phone and you can order new bank cards. Your priority is to think about getting yourself away from a potentially dangerous situation.
  • Spread your personal belongings - try not to keep all your valuables in your bag or in one place so that should the worst happen, you don’t have to give up everything.
  • If getting a taxi, use a valid taxi service or online cab checker to confirm it is licensed or send the registration number to a friend.
