Personal Safety

  • Travel in groups of two or more, even during the daytime, whenever possible
  • Stick to well-lit, safe routes   that can easily be overseen
  • Avoid dark and narrow alleyways and quieter areas
  • Even if it takes a little while longer, take diversions into more populated areas if there is a suitable route
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times - do not use mobile phones/headphones whilst walking
  • Do not carry large amounts of cash/valuables
  • Keep your phone hidden away in a pocket rather than in a bag, so that you can call the police if necessaryIsolated short cuts should always be treated with caution, even if it seems tempting to take a short cut

Call the police on 999 if you have time, or raise the alarm locally by screaming/shouting/running, if you believe you are about to become a victim of crime.

If you have any concerns about your personal safety, talk to the Community Safety team or the Police.
