Safety Tips: – Living, working and studying in any urban location necessitates awareness to remain safe!

  • Always be cognizant of your surroundings;
    • If listening to music while walking, jogging and/or biking, keep one ear bud out so you stay aware of your surroundings. You often hear what is going on before you see it.
  • Don’t walk alone, especially at night. Walk in groups of two or more – there is safety in numbers;
    • Walk and park in areas that are well lit;
    • Write down or take a picture of your parking location;
    • Avoid looking down at your cell phone when walking outside. 
  • Cross streets at designated crosswalks with the signal. State law gives the right-of-way to the pedestrian in the crosswalk, but it’s your responsibility to make safe decisions when entering the crosswalk;
  • Keep valuables secured and out of site; and   
  • Avoid using outdoor ATM’s after dark.
