Personal Safety Tips from the Kent Police Department:

  1. Walk with confidence and purpose with your head up.
  2. 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.
  3. Stay in well lit areas and avoid doorways, shrubbery and remote places.
  4. 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.
