Personal Safety Tips from the Kent Police Department:
- Walk with confidence and purpose with your head up.
- When you are standing at an ATM, walking down the street or getting out of your car, scan your surroundings for potential danger or suspicious activity.
- Stay in well lit areas and avoid doorways, shrubbery and remote places.
- Stay in pairs whenever possible.
If someone approaches you or seems to be following, cross the street or change directions and look for a safe place to go.
