Public space awareness:

  • Get to know your neighbours – not only does this promote a friendly environment, but also increases the awareness in your community.
  • Jog in familiar areas, and avoid secluded places.
  • Partner up with someone whilst jogging and equip yourselves with a whistle.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings.
  • Trust your instincts. If something feels wrong, something is probably wrong.
  • If you are being followed, head for a crowded place.
  • Always be aware when entering from the public space into your home environment and the same applies when you exit your home environment. Most attacks happen in driveways.

Lookout for the following vehicles involved in robberies in surrounding areas:

  • Black Mercedes C Class – 4 armed males
  • Silver Volvo
  • Silver Ford Focus (using false reg BB 69 XX GP)
