When arriving at a destination, remember 10 seconds to safety.
|SECONDS||CONDITION||WHAT TO DO||ASK YOURSELF|
|1-2||Destination is in eyesight||Scan the area||Is everything as expected?|
|3-4||Exiting car with elevated eye level||Notice surroundings||Are people around? How are they acting?|
|5-6||Approach destination||Gut check (always trust your instincts!)||Am I uneasy? Is there somebody currently on the property? Should there be?|
|7-8||At the doorway/entrance||Scan the inside||Is anyone or anything out of place? ex. Something is probably off if the door is unlocked but nobody's supposed to be inside|
|9-10||Entering the venue||Final gut check||Any noises? Anything out of place? Are there any signs of violence or carelessness?|
Try not to be a 'soft' target.
Criminals often look for ‘soft targets,’ or people that may be doing any of the following behaviors:
- Walking with your head down
- Being completely absorbed in your cell phone
- Looking lost or distracted from your surroundings
- Walking, jogging or running with headphones in both ears
- Carrying valuables in plain sight
- Carrying too many things, preventing you from having one hand free at all times
