Remember to choose the most public and well lit route home, and don't be tempted to take short cuts on less well lit routes, particularly dark alleyways or parks. Walk facing the traffic so that no-one can drive up behind you. If at any time you think you are being followed on foot, run to the nearest possible busy or well lit area where people may be around and call the police. Carry your bag close to your body with the opening facing towards you. But if someone tries to grab it, let it go. If you hang on, you could get hurt. Keep your house keys in your pocket rather than in your purse so you can still get home in any eventuality. Joggers in the evening or night - be sure to vary your route. Think about items that may be attractive to a robber - cover up expensive looking jewellery. Try to look confident, and walk with your head up. Try to keep your hands free - don't walk with them in your pockets. Stay alert, and do not be distracted by talking on a mobile or listening to personal stereos. Do not be sucked in by a casual request for a cigarette or for change. If you do feel frightened, try not to panic. Always try to think around the situation you are in, and always do the thing that will give you the best chance of getting out of the situation safely. Street crime is difficult to police because many street crimes are committed on the spur of the moment when an easy opportunity arises. Make sure that you do not look like an easy target.
