General Safety Tips:
     1 – The most effective way to prevent crime is through common sense, awareness, and basic safety precautions. Remember that your safety is your responsibility. Use your senses to always be aware of your surroundings.
    2 – Let someone know where you are going and when you’ll return, and let them know if you are going to be late or your plans change.
    3 – Know the areas where you live and work. Find out the locations of police and fire stations, hospitals, and businesses open 24 hours.
    4 – Stay aware and awake on public transportation and use well-lit spots.
    5 – Be aware when using the ATM machine, and have your card ready to use.
