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.


Alcohol Warnings

Never take open drinks from somebody you don't know or trust. If you have a drink and decide to put it down, do not pick it back up and finish it's content.


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 typically 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.
