Alternatives to Escorts

  • Try walking in pairs with a fellow classmate or coworker. Being in a group is always safer than walking alone.
  • Try to park as close to where you work or go to class as possible.
  • Try to break up your pattern of travel. Predators can memorize your travel patterns and attack you when you least expect it.
  • Walk in well- lit areas and near areas often traveled.
