Protect Yourself From Criminals with these Walking Safety Tips
Annapolis is a walking town.  We walk to dinner, walk to the store, and walk the dog.  Make sure you are walking safely, day and night.
  • Don’t be distracted.  Don’t focus on your cell phone while walking, keep your head up and remain aware of your surroundings.  If you wear headphones, keep the volume down so you can hear what is going on around you.
  • Stay in well-lit areas or carry a flashlight.
  • Stay in heavily traveled areas, or carry your cell phone close at hand to make an emergency call.
  • Know who to call if something doesn’t feel right, call 9-1-1 in an emergency, but you can also the non-emergency number for the Annapolis Police Department, 410-268-4141, it is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Walk like you own the place.  By being confident and keeping your head up you show people that you’re paying attention to what’s going on.
  • Take a friend.  If you can’t take a friend, let someone know where you’re going and when you should be back.
  • Carry a whistle or other noise maker.  If you need help it will attract immediate attention and may scare a criminal off.
  • Don’t walk drunk.  Drugs and alcohol affect your perception, reaction time, and judgment.
  • Don’t overload.  Avoid having your hands full while walking, or be prepared to drop everything if you need to move quickly.
  • Help your neighbors walk safely at night by leaving on outside lights that illuminate sidewalks and other walkways.  Consider motion activated lights that will turn on when people need them and also alert you that someone is outside your home.
