Ways To Stay Safe - Parking lots!!

More than 1 in 10 property crime occurs in parking lots.

Parking lots are a safety risk especially in the late afternoon. Here's some ways to stay safe.

If at work, when returning to your vehicle, try to walk with a co-worker or security officer. Then, give your escort a ride back to the building.

* Park in a visible and well-lit area near your building.

* If you park in a garage, look for a spot near the parking attendant, or near the stairs or exit.

* Park near the main entrance of the building.

* Have your keys in your hand as you approach your vehicle.

* If someone is loitering or appears to be following you pull out your cell phone and have a conversation the person following is clearly going to hear.

* Once inside your vehicle, lock the doors and keep the windows up.

* Always be aware of your surroundings. Keep your head up and constantly scanning.

* Don’t wear headphones or have your head buried on your phone. You must be situationally aware.
