Always Be Vigilant

At Always Bev, our mission is to educate and empower individuals with safety skills to prevent violence on innocent people. We teach the importance of awareness, how to identify warning signs for potentially violent behavior and the significance in trusting our intuition.

"As you move about your daily routines, never let your guard down. The trickiest predators attempt to gain access into our inner circle, while pretending that they are one us." ~Barb Jordan~

Always Bev was created in honor of my sister Beverly, who was tragically killed by gun violence, by her fiancé. Always Bev's commitment and passion is to help prevent others from being targeted and assaulted.   The Always Bev Personal Safety workshop has been called "life changing," and has been welcomed across the country in businesses, universities and communities.

Having more awareness in your daily routine will allow you to identify warning signs and help keep a safer environment for you, your family and friends. Always Bev will empower you with education that will allow you to see and hear indicators that can potentially cause harm. This course will also provide you with skills that will allow you to make quick decisions, including specific actions to take if ever approached, vulnerable or physically threatened.

We make at least one decision a day that can determine our safety. This class will enlighten you to think daily about your choices as well as  your encounters and conversations with people.

The Always Be Vigilant presentation is by far the most important part of my life's journey."  Barb Jordan, Founder, Always Bev.

Safety in Numbers

There is safety in numbers. When you have the chance, take somebody with you. If possible try and stay in groups of 3 or more.


Body Language

Your body language should be strong and with a good walking pace. Keep your head and eyes up. Make eye contact with people who approach you or linger in your environment.


Warning Signs

Phrases such as "I can't live without you," or 'I don't want to be here anymore," should be reported.


Understand Intrusive Conversations

Understand intrusive conversations and be aware about the personal information you are sharing with others, even if they are a familiar face.


Set Ground Rules

Set ground rules at home, work, and campus for friends, guests and others that enter your inner circle.


Confide in Family and Friends

Confide in your family and friends about a person in your life whose actions are concerning, especially if you have safety concerns for yourself or others.


Stand Firm

Stand firm if your response to somebody is “No.’ Your first thought is usually the right thought. Don't be charmed or manipulated to change your decision. Trust your intuition. Honor your "No."


Report Concerning Behavior

If you are concerned about the behavior of an individual, report it. Some examples include threatening words, intimidation, aggression or stalking.
