Personal Safety

These guidelines will help you to protect yourself and your family in reducing crime and maintaining a more secure and safer environment. 

  • Trust your instincts.
  • Never open your door to a stranger who does not show proper identification.
  • Don't leave keys hidden in obvious places.
  • Walk on well lit streets near the curb and away from alleys, particularly, if you must walk alone at night.
  • When in public, always beware of your surroundings. Be mindful of persons loitering or acting suspiciously.
  • If you suspect you are being followed, go to the nearest well lit place or populated area, and
    yell if necessary to attract attention.
  • Don't hitch-hike or pick up hitch-hikers. Once trapped inside the vehicle, it is difficult
    to escape.
  • If you are being sexually or physically abused at home, in the workplace, in a social
    setting, help is available. Report this situation to police.
  • Be aware that any form of sexual activity without consent, even in a marriage or on a
    date, is a sexual assault and a criminal offence.
  • Have your keys ready upon approaching your parked vehicle.
  • Keep your personal information secure.
  • Don't display large amounts of money in public.  
  • Be aware of scams in case a stranger approaches you under false pretenses.
