Crime and Personal Safety

Not everything in here might be applicable to your situation. Some advice might seem redundant and not at all fitting your lifestyle. However, your lifestyle is the biggest determining factor in your chances of becoming a victim of crime.

It is a proven fact, your lifestyle and the people you socialize with can and will make you a victim. Sometimes it is far worse; the company you keep and the situations you get yourself into, can and will make you a criminal. The choice is yours.

Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men, Proverbs 4, 14 (NIV)

We were all made with a built-in compass for what is right and what is wrong. The right decisions in your life, turning away from the wrong people and the wrong situations, will make your life safer and productive.

So please try to use and implement as much as you can to stay safer. Also train and educate your family members/friends to ensure safety for all. You are responsible for your own personal safety, not the police, so stay observant and aware and maintain focus.

There is no reason to live in fear of crime and violence. There is however reason to take reasonable precautions. And in doing so, you will have deterred most criminals from choosing you as their victim. The harder you make it for the criminal to victimize you, the more likely he is to go ply his trade elsewhere. You won’t have stopped the criminal from being a criminal, but you will have stopped him from choosing you as a victim.
