Robbery is a crime of violence that can threaten any person or business. Remember that money and material items can be replaced, but your life cannot. To protect yourself from becoming the victim of robbery, consider the following safety tips:
- Travel well-lit and populated routes. Avoid walking or parking in dark or shadowed areas. Have your keys in your hand as you approach your door, and remember to be alert to your surroundings. Glance under your car, around it, and in the back seat before you get in.
- Avoid text messaging or talking on the phone unless you absolutely need to use the phone.
- Avoid displaying and carrying large sums of money in public. Only carry the credit cards you need.
- Be careful with purses or wallets. Carry a purse close to your body, but do not loop or wrap straps around you. A purse snatcher could injure you. Keep wallets in an inside pocket.
- There’s safety in numbers. Consider walking to class, doing errands, or shopping with a friend or two, especially at night.
- If you are confronted, cooperate! Give the criminal what he/she asks for — wallet, keys, jewelry, credit cards, electronics, etc. Your life is more valuable than your possessions. Don’t make sudden moves or try to apprehend the criminal yourself. Concentrate on remembering the person’s description and call police immediately.
- Report any suspicious activity or person immediately to the CI Police Department by calling 805-437-8444 or 911.
