Over the past two months, there have been several vandalism and pick pocketing occurrences in our neighborhood. These cases have not been reported, allowing these petty criminals to walk away without any consequences.
Many residents may feel that they are alone in their plight, and are also worrying for their safety.
“What are the steps you can take to avoid being a victim?”
- Keep valuable belonging in pockets, or bags that only you can access.
- Avoid standing alone in dim, or empty areas. Walk with purpose, or direction.
- If you suspect that you are being followed by a pick pocket, be unpredictable.
- Avoid talking to strangers that approach you when you are alone.
