Robbery Prevention and Safety Tips

  • Trust your instincts – if you sense trouble, move to a safe location as soon as possible.
  • Remain alert and be aware of your location, surroundings, and individuals near you, - walk with your head up and avoid distractions like cell phones or carrying too many items.
  • If confronted, try to stay calm and follow the robber’s directions.
    • Make slow, deliberate movements, and explain them as you do.
    • Do not offer more than what they ask for.
    • Be the best witness you can be.  Make mental notes of sex, race, age, height, weight, hair and eye color, build, and clothing. Note anything unusual about the suspect, such as scars, tattoos, strange mannerisms, or speech patterns.
    • Give the robber time to leave, and when you feel safe, CALL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY.
