Personal safety

Alert message sent 19/01/2019 16:27:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Its important to take personal safety seriously and a few simple
precautions can help lower your chances of becoming a victim of
crime.
When out and about you should:
• stick to busy, well-lit areas, look self-confident and walk with
purpose
• consider places of safety along your route, such as a friends house
or shops, where you could seek help if necessary
• keep your purse, wallet, money and valuables out of sight
• keep bags closed, zipped and buckled
• avoid walking and talking on your mobile phone
• wear your bag across your chest, so that it cant be pulled from
your shoulder
• never leave bags unattended
• carry only the amount of money that you need
If someone tries to take something from you, let them have it. Dont
put yourself at risk of being hurt by trying to hold on to it. Throw the
item on the ground in front of you, run away and shout loudly to
draw attention to what is happening.
If you think youre being followed, cross over the road to see if they
follow you. If youre still worried, dont wait around. Go into a pub,
shop or other busy public place. Call a friend to meet you there and
report it to the police.
