Why Is Your Self Protection Important?

Why is personal safety important? Well, have you ever had that uneasy…….”Somebody is Watching Me” feeling? They probably are! Here is a list of 10 things you need to do to keep you and your family safe when you are out on a walk, or home watching TV. In todays scary world, we need to be vigilant and protect ourselves, since law enforcement officers can not be everywhere all the time.

10 Personal Safety Tips From Law Enforcement Officers:

1. Be Aware – Always be alert to what is going on around you. Pay attention to your surroundings, not your cell phone! Does something look out of place, or appear strange? There may not be some big bad boogey man lurking around behind the next bush, but that guy in the playground, wearing a suit and tie on a hot summer day, and came with no child, but is just hanging around, might seem odd.

Watch for the cars that drive slowly through your neighborhood. Yes, they might just be kind and actually be driving the posted speed limit, or being cautious in case a small child runs out, but they could also be thieves casing the area. Know your neighbors vehicles. Get to know them, if possible. Set up a neighborhood watch.

Criminals like to catch their victims unaware. They look for people that are distracted and move in for the attack. Act confident in what you are doing. You don’t have to be scared and looking over your shoulder, just pay attention.

2. Listen To Your Inner Voice – Your Sixth Sense might save your life! Avoid any situation or person that just “Doesn’t Feel Right”. Have you ever said to yourself “That guy seemed a little fishy to me”, or “I just don’t trust that guy”? Well you were probably right and it is best to get away. So what if people think you are being paranoid or irrational. Don’t let it dominate your life, but certainly go with that gut instinct and wait for that next bus, or take a different route home. Listen to that voice and stay safe.

3. Keep Your Valuables In a Safe SpotNow I’m not just talking about your jewelry and money in a safe at home, but on your person too. Take as little cash as needed on trips out of the home. Carry your purse strapped around your shoulder and chest. Never leave your purse on your car seat or in your grocery cart. Avoid the ATM, but if you do have to use one, try and go during the daylight and get your cash and move along. Do not linger and become a victim.

4. Plan An Escape – At home this may seem easier. There are many doors and windows in which we can lock or crawl out of, but what about while on an outing? Keep in mind your surroundings and try to avoid alleyways or dead end streets. If approached by an attacker, make as much noise as possible. Have a Personal Alarm handy, run, yell, throw your purse aside. More than likely, they will go for your purse and leave you alone.

5. Take a Self Defense Course – A certified instructor can show your the proper techniques to be able to easily defend yourself, so you do not become a victim. You could also save a few dollars and purchase a Self Defense Video to learn some of the basics, or get some good ideas.

6. Fight If You CanSometimes, despite your best efforts, you may still find yourself in a bad situation. Even if you have never had any formal training in self defense, you should try and defend yourself. Statistics prove that those that have fought back had the greatest survival rate. Carry a small can of Pepper Spray. Not only can it be used against a person attacking, but dogs too! Aim for the face for the most effect. Carry a small Stun Gun. They are another perfect self defense tool that can be used to slow your perpetrator down and give you a chance to get away

7. Wear Bright ClothingYou need to be seen at night. You don’t want to be a victim of an accident either. Stay as far off the road as possible and wear Safety Lights for Shoes, or Safety Light Arm Bands. Wear a Reflective Vest. There is even a Safety Light for Pets too! Just make yourself as visible as possible.

8. Lock Your House and Garage – Even if you are home, you should have the doors locked. While you are out in the back yard, a burglar could just strut right on in through your front door and catch you unawares. Never open your front door, unless you know who is on the other side. Be wary of people who might dress as officers or repairmen. It may seem innocent enough, but look to see if a police car is in your driveway. Ask him through the door to provide identification and call the repair office or police station to see if they are legit.

9. Lock Doors And Windows In Your CarThe best place for a car thief or burglar to victimize you while your driving, is when you are stopped at an intersection. Especially those extra long signals. They will wait until the right car to come along and jump in the passenger seat, or come up along side the drivers side, open the door and pull you out. Have your purse on the passenger seat? A thief can just reach in your open window, grab it and run. Again, be vigilant and aware at all intersections and lock up.

10. Use Extra Caution When Traveling – When you’re on vacation, the last thing you want to think about is being a victim of a crime, but this is the time when you must be most vigilant. You will be in strange environments and likely paying attention to the sights around you, instead of the potential crime element. Lock your hotel and car doors at all times. Never open the door, unless you are sure who is on the other side. Use a Personal Door Alarm to scare off any potential thieves, or alert you that someone may be trying to enter your room.

While it is rare that hotel staff will steal from you while you are out for the day, it is suggested that you never leave cash or jewelry out in the open for anyone to see. Carry an Auto Safety Tool, or kit for emergencies on the road. And now you know Why Personal Safety Is Important!

I hope these common sense tips will keep you safe
