SAFER: Top tips to keep you and your belonging safe this winter

As the nights are drawing in, its a good time to think about simple ways you can keep yourself and your belonging safe from criminals.

The Met Police provides great information and tips, including:

  • Keep your valuables, including your mobile, hidden from view.
  • When walking on the pavement, try to walk against the flow of traffic. This helps you spot anyone on bikes coming towards you.
  • Make a plan.  If you’re going out, think ahead about how you’re going to travel home. Pre-book a taxi.
  • Carry bags in front of you or diagonally across your chest.
  • Keep a list of contact numbers for family and friends separate from your wallet or phone.
