The following simple tips, when put into practice, can reduce the opportunity for you becoming a crime victim.
Criminals are constantly surveying the environment for an opportunity to commit crimes. Thieves will look for a running vehicle, or an individual who leaves their valuables in the backseat of their vehicle.
Criminal opportunity is accomplished by a lack of witnesses, or the creation of an easy target. The probability of being detected influences a criminal's decision to commit a crime. Increasing witness potential is one way to reduce criminal opportunity, but being more observant and aware of surroundings is another proactive method of enhancing your security. Don’t make it easy for the criminal to make you a victim!
