Personal Security & Awareness

Personal Security & Awareness

Every week there are tens of thousands of robberies, attacks, thefts and vandalism cases reported across the UK. It costs the local economy millions of pounds a year to fix and the mental scars can last a lifetime for the victims. Unfortunately, for many of us we have to accept that living with this threat is now a common factor in our day to day lives. That’s why it is vital for you to know these basic tips on increasing your personal security and awareness…

Personal Security Tips

Make sure you know where you are going and the route you are taking.

It is absolutely vital that you are familiar or have some knowledge of your surroundings, especially if you are out at night. Try your best to stay in well lit or populated areas. Stay away from dark alleys or crossing waste land. It’s not worth the risk.

Keep your valuables hidden and secure.
It’s common sense. Don’t have your phone sticking out of your back pocket, you are just asking for somebody to steal it! Tuck your phone in your inside pocket, make sure your bag is fully closed and you can hear your surroundings clearly. Its not a great idea to have two earphones in at once, people can easily walk up behind you without you being aware.

Look confident. Criminals target the vulnerable.
The slightest factors can be the difference between you being selected as a target or not. Looking confident and assured is one of them. Potential attackers may be put off approaching you if you hold your head up high and show strength and confidence in your posture and stride.
