Nothing is failsafe, but here are some crime prevention suggestions everyone should consider:

  • Crime victims are never responsible for the behavior of perpetrators.
  • Be active in supporting a safe and respectful community. If you see others engaging in illegal, disrespectful or inappropriate actions, speak up and get involved, or contact someone else to assist.
  • If you’re a bystander and see someone behaving in a way that seems dangerous, step in and do something about it. If you don’t feel comfortable or safe confronting them, call 911.
