Traveling after hours tips, from the Department of Public Safety Services.

  • Always travel in groups.
  • Look assertive and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Avoid secluded and poorly lit areas, especially shortcuts through parks, vacant lots, and other deserted areas.
  • Keep keys accessible and ready to use when approaching your building or vehicle.
  • Trust your instincts.
