CRIME PREVENTION TIPS!
Report suspicious behavior and activities immediately to police. If you see something, say something.
Always pay attention to your surrounding. Avoid becoming absorbed in listening to music, phone applications, or other distractions.
Avoid isolated locations. Stay in well lit, well populated areas. Criminals most often seek isolated persons to victimize.
Remember that money and property can be replaced. Physical resistance to a robber may increase your chances of injury.
