PERSONAL SAFETY TIPS FROM OFFICER SNOW WHITE DPD

Community Resource Officer Snow White from Denver Police Department

The city is experiencing an uptick in street robberies in the last several weeks. We’d like you to have some tips to keep yourself safe:
PERSONAL SAFETY
Always be aware of your surroundings and when possible walk with a group of friends
Avoid or limit distractions, such as using your phone, and notice people who pass you
Avoid dark areas and short-cuts
Avoid passing close to shrubbery
Park and walk in well-lit and well traveled streets
Be discreet with valuables
At night, take a flashlight
Use your cell phone only in an emergency
If any vehicle approaches and you are threatened or you are being followed:
Switch directions or cross the street
Look for an open business or a nearby home for assistance
Head for a well-lighted area where there are other people
Don’t accept or give rides to strangers
Be prepared to protect yourself if someone attempts to force you into a vehicle
Scream and run in a direction opposite of the vehicle
Call or have someone call 911
