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 approch you and those that loiter in your environment.



When passing somebody make sure there is space, and that you create your own walking lane. If you pass somebody and feel concerned, it is OK to look back over your shoulder.


Understand Intrusive Conversations

Understand intrusive conversations and pay attention to 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 keep getting a nagging feeling.


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, stalking, and angry outbursts.
