Personal safety and security are so important. Luckily, it is perfectly possible to help yourself stay safer when out and about in public, simply by being more aware of your surroundings. Here are some of the things you can do:
- Always be on the lookout. Being aware of what is going on around you can help prevent you from falling victim to thefts and pickpocketing.
- Stay in areas with a high-security presence. A security guard always provides a reassuring presence, especially in busy areas.
- Report anything that looks unusual. If you spot an unattended package or see someone acting suspiciously, report it straight away. It can’t do any harm and it is better to be safe than sorry.
- Stay in well-lit areas. This will help you stay out of dangerous areas and fall victim to crimes on the street. When possible, stay close to other people and stick to busy streets.
