As law abiding citizens and peaceful
respectful human beings we need to be more aware of our
surroundings. Considering all of the "Violent, Lowlife,
Criminals and Terrorists" that exist here on "Gods Green
Earth" we especially need to be more careful. Each of us
can play an important part and role concerning the
safety and well being of the public, family, and
friends. You don't have to get overall involved with
trying to solve all the problems that exist. However,
you can pay attention to and be aware of suspicious
"Persons, Acts, and Conditions" and report these
incidents or matters to the local Police Department or
FBI Office. It can be a simple as you observing a person
leaving some baggage in an airport, which as we know
sadly to say may be a bomb. By advising the authorities
we may be interrupting or stopping a possible terrorist.
From the minute we leave our homes in the
morning to returning, going shopping, and other
interactions that we are involved in. This allows all of
us to observe different scenarios of which we can
memorize cars, faces, places, things etc., Our "Sick
Sense" becomes "Attracted" and "Alerted" to certain
people of whom may seem suspicious etc. These are the
indications and particulars that may be of help to the

other violent groups from planning to commit "Useless,

Keep a log book of unusual or suspicious calls and
contact the police immediately.

Residential and Business Safety Tips
You may want to
install a security system
at home and at your business. A security system can be
an effective means in countering and deterring
criminal presence. If need be you can install a CCTV
Video Camera system to tape your property.
If someone knocks at
be very careful. They may be a criminal posing as a
delivery person or salesman seeking to observe the
inside of your residence and specific times that you
may be there. Put a chain lock on your door and a
peephole so that you can communicate with them without
giving them a chance to possibly accost you. If they
do not check out shut the door immediately, get their
license plate from a nearby window, being careful not
to allow them to see you through the window and obtain
other important descriptions (i.e.: weight, height,
hair, race), etc. And contact police.
If strangers alert
you or catch you off guard
while you are possibly mowing your lawn, never admit
to being home alone. If they start questioning you,
advise them that you will get your husband and son to
come out to speak with them. Go inside and lock the
door if these people appear to be suspicious contact
Try not to announce
your personal plans or views in public.
Because the bad guy may be listening and obtaining
information and thoughts about you. Cordless
telephones can also easily be intercepted and ease
dropped by a criminal using an inexpensive scanner
that they may have.
Don't leave your
personal organizer/calendar unattended
at work or while at appointments. Someone can look at
the book and know when you have vacation or can follow
you. Lock up your personal belongings at work,
especially pocket book, address book and wallets.
If you are home alone
try to keep your shades or blinds curbed or down
during the day
and place plants in front of your windows so it
appears that someone may be at home. Similarly at
night, utilize automatic on/off timers on lights and
your phone off the hook instead of an answering
machine should you be going out to throw the criminal
off guard. Alternate these concepts regularly so that
the lowlife criminal cannot establish a pattern of
your activities and possibly time your arrival and
departure times and places.
You may want to keep
your property well manicured and maintained,
especially entranceways and exits to eliminate
criminals from hiding in such spots. Mainly be aware
of possible hiding spots where ever you may travel to
avoid surprise attacks. Put thorny bushes under
bedroom windows and near entrances and exits to
further deter possible criminals from hiding.
Install high output
and automatic light sensors security devices around
your property which comes on when something walks in
front of them.
When you relocate
to a new building, business or residential apartment,
be sure to change all locks and alarm access codes,
etc. Previous occupants and associates may still have
If you should place a
code or personal information to assist you should you
forgot something, be sure to be very careful in
placing same. Criminals are aware of all the hiding
spots, under mats, flower pots, etc. Place your key
under or around your favorite plant outside. Use it as
little as possible.
Lock your doors when
you are working
in the yard, attic, or any place away from your home
entry areas. While you are busy elsewhere, burglars
could easily enter your homes unnoticed and be hiding
and awaiting your arrival.
Be sure that you
your home, car, and windows. Many times when you are
showering, outside, or in the basement, the bad guy
may be planning to rape, rob you or burglarize your
property. Be aware of your surroundings.
Martial Arts and Physical Training
You may decide to
enroll in a self-defense course.
There are many types and martial arts disciplines
offered, you should carefully consider your personal
situation and requirements. Be sure to analyze and
compare teachings as well as prices. Try to avoid
instructors that want to lock you into an annual
contract and fail to provide you with adequate
instruction. Another downfall is if the instructor
doesn't normally teach the classes and has his or her
green belts or other inadequate personnel instruct
you, this is wrong and can be unhelpful. I highly
recommend Aikido for women, however, be sure ladies
that you find an Aikido school that teach real world
If your state,
nation, or country
allows you to possess and use mace or pepper spray as
a self-defense tool, do so. Just make sure that
someone suitably trains you on the use of such tool.
There are horns, whistles, stun guns and other items
available as well if your country permits you. Just
make sure you have proper training. If your country
permits the use of firearms, be sure to check with
your local police department for the rules and
regulations concerning same.
Always have your keys
out and ready
before leaving a
building or approaching your car as well as your
residence. Trying to locate your keys after you reach
your car or home provides criminals an excellent
opportunity to sneak up on you. Have your car door
lock key and ignition key out and accessible. Also be
aware that criminals may hide inside your vehicle or
underneath your car and attempt to attack you. Keep
your windows locked and rolled up as well.
Never give a parking
attendant or mechanic
or similar all of your keys. Only provide them with
the ignition key and know the names of the people. You
may want to keep a written log book to assist you for
future reference of whom handled your keys and the
dates. Color each key so that you know which lock the
key is used for and can quickly locate same to avoid
Also, it’s a good
idea to look behind as you are walking from time to
you see the same person or vehicle following you more
than twice, you may want to proceed to a well
populated area and seek help and reevaluate the
situation quickly. Don't be afraid to call the police
that is what they are there for.
When you enter your
assuming the bad guy isn't inside already hiding. Be
sure to lock your door immediately. Don't attempt to
start your vehicle first, until you secure your doors.
If someone or
something appears suspicious-
have a notepad and pen available in your vehicle so
that you can write down vehicles plates. Drive away to
a well populated area and report same to the police.
If you are involved
in a motor vehicle
accident and have a cell phone, immediately call 911
if possible. If you feel uncomfortable due to night
time hours or darkness- tell the driver through your
window without opening your door that you have called
911 and will proceed to a well populated area where
the police are waiting and write their vehicle license
plates and personal description down on a note pad.
If you haven't done
purchase a cell phone and keep same charged regularly
and have a back up charged battery. Cell phones are
the best means of help.
If you are being
accosted or assaulted
and have nowhere to run to consider going underneath a
vehicle (not the bad guys), it is very hard for them
to take you.
Always maintain your
i.e.: tune-up, oil change, etc. Filling up your
vehicle with gas during day light hours in a familiar
area is best so that you aren't forced to drive in an
unfamiliar area possible at night which is dangerous.
Do not leave your car
running while you are in a store.
Do not leave your keys in your ignition with or
without your car running because they are susceptible
to being stolen.
Never pick up
It is never safe to have a stranger in the car with
you. When you see a hitchhiker do not pick them up.
Even if they seem to be an innocent lady or girl, they
may be accompanied by a bad guy hiding in the area
waiting for your arrival. If you want to be a good
citizen and need to take action. Call 911 and advise
them of where the stranded hitchhikers or persons may
be. Hitchhiking is considered a crime.
and establish a street, community, or neighborhood
Your own administration highway department office can
install the signs. You should communicate with your
neighbors, if they aren't the criminal of course and
discuss suspicious cars, people, or ideally what
action to take should something unusual occur.
Some Additional Security Tips
If you are followed
drive to a well lit and populated area & take good notes
of vehicle following you i.e.; license plate, color,
make & model, etc and contact the police.
When blow drying your hair or taking a
lock your door, set your resident alarm, place your dog
in home to alert you should someone attempt to gain

for your address, telephone number or other personal
information advise them you do not wish to give any if
absolutely mandatory write it down and put confidential
on the top of it reason being there are people or the
criminal is in line or around also and may hear what you
are saying as well.
Always let someone know
where you are and where you may be going, you should
report all unusual stalking or following of you by any
suspicious persons to the police immediately.
Get an unpublished telephone number
if possible and avoid from giving your number to the
wrong person, give only responsible people your number
and keep track of whom you have given it to. Tell these
responsible people that you have given your telephone
number, not to give it out at all and if someone asks
them for it, to tell you who they were so that you can
research why if necessary. Using your first initial and
then your last name is well known fact to all thieves
and rapists. Put the name of some fictitious male along
with yours, when you find that special someone you can
explain why John Does name was listed with yours.
If he is that special someone he will understand.
Practice some sort of self defense,
conditioning, run, exercise regularly, meditate, study,
learn and build mental, spiritual, and physical strength
by applying yourself building your attention span and
other important qualities.
Be aware of any unusual people,
cars, occurrences which can worsen. Take good notes and
advise family, friends, and police.
When parked in traffic
keeps doors locked as usual and leave yourself enough
distance from the vehicle in front of you should a
criminal attempt to walk alongside your vehicle and gain
entry or attack you.
When traveling to and from places
use different routes of travel within reason so that the
lowlife criminal cannot know or track your travel
routes. Be sure to always tell someone, i.e. family,
close friend, significant other what ways you may go
should you not arrive home.
