Keeping Street Sense in Mind
Police Crime Report
For the Week ending September 27, 2010
Walking – during the day or at night
- Stay Alert! Be tuned into your surroundings, wherever you are (at school, the mall, on the street, waiting for a bus, Metro or driving).
- Stand tall and walk confidently. Send the message that you’re calm, confident and know where you’re going.
- Don’t accept rides or gifts from someone you don’t know and trust, including people you’ve met on the Internet.
- Trust Your Instincts. If something or someone makes you feel uncomfortable, then avoid the person or situation and leave.
- Know the neighborhoods where you live, and attend school and work. Keep in mind locations of fire and police stations. Remember which stores and restaurants stay open late.
If someone tries to rob you:
- Try to walk in places with your friends rather than alone.
- Stick to well-lighted, well-traveled streets. Avoid shortcuts through wooded areas, parking lots or alleys.
- Take the safest route to and from schools, stores or your friends’ houses. Know where to go for help if you need it.
- Do not display your cash or any other inviting targets like cell phones, hand-held electronics (video games, Ipods), or expensive jewelry and clothing.
- Carry your backpack or purse close to your body and keep it closed. If you are carrying a wallet, carry it in your front pants pocket.
- Have your keys in your hand before you reach your house or vehicle.
- If you work late, make sure there are others in the building and that someone will wait with you for your ride or walk you to your car or bus/train stop.
- If you think someone is following you, switch directions or cross the street. If they are still there, move quickly toward an open store/restaurant or a lighted house. Do not be afraid to yell for help.
- Be alert in the neighborhood. Call police about anything you see that seems suspicious.
What to do after you have been robbed:
- Try to stay calm. Do not make any sudden movements to upset the robber.
- Do exactly as you are told. Do not resist.
- If you have to move, tell the robber what you are going to and why.
- Do not play hero. Give up your property. Remember your property can be replaced, your life can’t.
- Try to get a good look at the robber, so you can describe him to police.
- Give the robber time to leave.
- Note the direction of travel when he/she leaves.
- Try to get a description of the vehicle if you can do so without exposing yourself to harm.

- Call police immediately.
- If there are any witnesses, ask them to stay until police arrive.
- Do not discuss the details of the robbery with witnesses.
- Try to recall as much as you can about the robber’s appearance, speech and mannerisms, and make notes.
