Vision Tactical –
Always be aware of your surroundings.
It can be easy to get lost in our own little worlds when we’re out and about; be sure to stay alert and keep an eye out for anything that doesn’t feel safe or makes you feel uncomfortable.
Don’t get loaded down with too many bags. Try to keep one hand free.
Having both hands full of heavy shopping bags limits your ability to protect yourself. Share your bags with a friend where possible.
Walk with purpose, even if you feel nervous.
It will keep you focused, and stop you from lingering or looking lost.
Avoid walking through open and dark spaces, use the lighted routes.
It may take longer, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Don’t walk with both headphones in…could you hear someone approaching you?
It’s common for of us to travel with headphones, but completely blocking out the sounds surrounding you is dangerous. If someone is approaching you from behind, your ears are your warning.
Be careful where and how you park your car. Choose a well-lit space away from pillars and reverse into a position; it’s much easier to drive forward than reversing, especially in situations of stress and fear.
It’s also good practice to never leave your keys in the ignition, even just for a minute, and make sure to lock your doors both when you’re driving and parked. Unlocked doors and left keys make your car a tempting proposition for an opportunistic thief.
If you think you are being followed, whether you’re in your car or on foot, don’t stop until you find a place with plenty of people around. If you’re extremely concerned, go to the nearest police station or call the police. Do not make your way home until you are absolutely sure you are not being pursued.
Control your social status: Don’t be tempted to broadcast to the world your location. Do you know who’s watching you?
In the age of social media, it’s easier than ever to let the world know what you are doing at any given moment. Never underestimate how far what you post online can travel. Discussing your holiday plans on social media could potentially lead predators to your location, or even burglars to your empty home.
Going to a party? Never go out without knowing how you’re going to get back home.
It’s party season and many of us will be enjoying nights out with friends and family, or going out into town to celebrate the new year.
Make sure to plan ahead, knowing where you are going, who is going to be there and how you are going to get home. It’s good practice to carry extra money (hidden) in case of emergencies.
Always plan your journeys in advance.
