Everyone needs to think about being the victim of a crime in this unstable economy. Crime is on the rise in almost every city in the country and can happen to anyone at anytime in any place. People need to learn how to be proactive before they become a victim and not reactive because they are a victim.
The 3-in-1 Security Guard measures 15″ in length and has a handle circumference of 4-1/2″. The handle is made of aluminum with a non-slip grip. The lamp circumference measures 6-1/2″ and is made of ABS plastic. Just like a Maglite flashlight baton, it is bigger in the light bulb end and tapers to the smaller circumferential size in the aluminum handle end. The light bulb is a halogen bulb which is several times brighter than a regular flashlight.
Make sure the hotel’s name is known. Always choose the hotels with the name that was heard. Anyway, check out the chain’s hotels. Some use a different name but the name of the chain or similar hotel owners.
Every room that has two entrances should have a three way light switch installed at each entrance. You could try motion sensor lighting but it has been my experience that a person is halfway into the room before the light comes on.
Its a good thing I had a personal alarm for women with me because I got off the bike stepped sideways till I found the wall of the tunnel, sounded the alarm so Kelly could come towards me so we couldn’t get ran over.
Carry something that could be used as a weapon. Keys are an obvious choice, but aren’t actually that useful -an attacker would have to get pretty close to you before you could use them. An umbrella or even a purse can be used to hit someone. If you make yourself a difficult victim, you’re less likely to become a victim. Carry pepper spray and as soon as you feel uncomfortable, pull it out of your purse.
Often, our ordinary daily routines make us a target for criminal activity. Following these simple rules of personal safety can dramatically decrease the possibility of becoming a crime victim.
