Safety Time

With the start of a new school year comes a good time to remind citizens the importance of personal safety. The Santa Ramona Police department recommends the following:

  • Be aware of your surroundings. You wouldn’t text and drive so don’t text and walk. Having your head down over a phone signals would be attackers you aren’t paying attention.

  • Travel in groups. Most predators will go for the lone creature away from the herd, criminals are much the same. There is safety in numbers.

  • Walk in the light. A dark alley short cut may save you time but at the cost of your life potentially. It’s better to be late than dead.

  • When in doubt, scream it out. If you feel threatened don’t stay silent about it. It’s better to be embarrassed about making a fuss over nothing than being a quiet corpse.

  • Don't accept drinks from someone when you go out. If you have to leave your table, don't drink from the glass you left behind. Order a new drink.

“You must take your safety as seriously as you would picking out a new pair of shoes" says the always fashionable, Chief of Police Sarina Jade.
