Most violent crimes occur through opportunity, rather than careful planning.  There are many ways to make yourself a less desirable target, such as:
 
     - Choose populated places rather than deserted ones.

     - Try to avoid being out alone after dark.

     - Have a friend accompany you.

     - Walk with a dog.

     - Be alert to your surroundings.
          o Walk with your head on a “swivel”, eyes constantly scanning all around you as you go.
          o Don’t wear headphones, as they reduce your sense of hearing and lessen your awareness

     - When approaching your car, have car keys in your hand (can be used as weapons)

     - Upon entering your vehicle, lock it.
          o Do not arrange your purse, laptop, bags while sitting in the car with the door open or
             unlocked – your attention will be distracted from what is taking place outside your vehicle.

     - Carry your purse over the shoulder and hold it close to your body.

     - Choose to walk in open areas if possible.

     -  Walk with a sense of purpose and try to exude confidence.

     - Always carry a cell phone, just in case.
