Bring just enough cash – not in excess of what you need

Call the Police to report groups of drunkards that act in a violent manner

Dogs are great companions, especially when you are walking alone

Emphasise on road safety at all times – you wouldn’t want to meet a road bully!

Finish your conversations… walking around with a handphone makes you less alert

Gauge the sounds of nearby motorbikes – snatch thiefs may be on the prowl

Hold your handbags close to you and carry it on the shoulder which is further from the road

Install an alarm system for your house

Jewelries attract the attentions of snatch thefts – don’t wear them excessively

Keys held between fingers is a good way to scratch an assailant’s face

Lock your car doors immediately upon entering the vehicle

Make sure you don’t get into lifts with suspicious individuals

Pepper sprays or a personal alarm comes in handy in desperate situations

Queuing up for ATMs – bring a partner along or withdraw minimum cash

Report to the Police if you see suspicious individuals prowling the streets

Scream for help to attract attention – if someone snatches your handbag

Try not to go to carparks alone, or park nearer to the lift or lit areas
