Personal Safety Tips

  1. Trust your instincts. If you suspect that something is wrong, or a situation seems dangerous, you may be right! Do not ignore suspicious people, cars, or situations. Report them to Security or the Police immediately.

  2. Avoid dangerous situations. Do not invite trouble. Use your best judgment about where you go and what you do.

  3. Walk to your car with your key in your hand and look in your vehicle before getting into it to see if anyone is inside. Also, be aware of your surroundings and individuals as you approach your vehicle.

  4. Keep valuables out of sight in the trunk.

  5. Lock your car and use locking devise(s). Such as a Club, alarm, kill switch, etc. Never leave your car parked, running, and unattended.

  6. Be aware of bushes and tight corners you can not see around.

  7. Call Security for an escort in the evening or walk with a friend.

  8. If someone attempts to rape, assault, or abduct you, follow your instincts. Attract attention by blowing a whistle or screaming, run, hit, bite, or use other forms of self-defense. Do whatever comes naturally and do it immediately!

  9. Your goal is to escape and survive. Escaping and surviving an attack are the most important considerations. Keep them in mind as you act and react. Remember, each emergency is different and only YOU can decide what action is best.

  10. If a crime does happen, report it to Security and the Police as soon as possible. Important information to remember: time of the incident, person’s appearance (height, weight, clothing, scars, hair, etc.), and car’s make, model, color, and especially its license number.

  11. When leaving your office (if applicable), close and lock windows and doors. Do not leave purses unattended and unsecured.
