Security System* by OC AIIALUPR V AU jct (UMM I/MITA nom VT VI KMM IMC. 1-800-835-4827 On Tuesday, August 3rd, neighborhoods throughout New Braunfels are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the "10th Annual National Night Out" (NNO) crime/drug prevention event, 5th annual in New Braunfels. This annual event will involve over 8,500 Communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 25 million people are expected to participate in "America's Night Out Against Crime" on August 3rd. National Night Out is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support and participation in local anticrime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community relations; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. From 6 to 10 p.m. on August 3rd, residents in neighborhoods throughout New Braunfels and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods through New Braunfels will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from police, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and anticrime and drug rallies. This event is an ideal opportunity for citizens and law enforcement to get together in a positive atmosphere to promote crime/drug prevention awareness and police-community partnerships. We are encouraging people throughout New Braunfels to come out in force and show criminals that there are more of us - than them. Again this year the theme will be "Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs A Going Away Party." SRX A Division of Ark la, Inc.BeckerMotor Company "The Deals Are Better At Becker" 625-3463 547 S. Seguin BASIC STREET SMARTS Minding Your Own Business PORTER Your Symbol of Security You can take a number of steps to avoid being approached by someone who might harass, harm, or rob you. Generally, assailants size up their victims in the first 10 to 15 seconds of an encounter. They're usually looking for easy prey, so you should give off signals that you’re calm, confident, and know where you're going. Follow these street smart tips: •Stay alert to your surroundings. Don't daydream, and be extra careful if you wear headphones. You need to be aware of what’s in front of you and behind you. Take note of who is standing next to you when shopping and commuting. • Walk purposefully, at a steady pace, and make quick eye contact with people around you. • Stay in well-lighted areas as much as possible after dark. • Don’t overload yourself with packages. You may need your arms free to defend yourself. •Don't wear clothing or shoes that restrict movement. • Women should carry purses under one arm, with the closure toward the body. Shoulder bags should be worn on the side away from the curb. • Never wrap your purse around your shoulder, neck, or wrist. You could be knocked down and injured by assailants. • Walk facing traffic, close to the curb, avoiding doorways, bushes, and alleys. • Runners, cyclists, and walkers should wear reflective clothing at night and consider buying a whistle or a shriek alarm, it's also a good idea to go in pairs, if possible, and to vary your itinerary if you go out frequently. • lf someone is following you on foot or running up behind you, abruptly cross the street, lf the person continues to follow you, head toward an open store, restaurant, or lighted home nearby, if you can. • lf you're on foot and a car follows you, turn and walk in the opposite direction or walk to the other side of the street. • Don’t keep your keys and ID together: if you're robbed, your home could be burglarized later. • Only keep a few dollars in your wallet or purse. Conceal the rest elsewhere. • Trust your instincts, lf you feel uneasy, don't park in that particular lot or get into that elevator or cab. To Resist or Not to Resist lf you're accosted, despite having taken precautions, you may still be able to short-circuit a confrontation, lf an individual verbally harasses you, don't appear submissive or afraid. Act tough. Breathe deeply to remain calm. Look the person right in the eye, say loudly and firmly, 'Leave me alone,' and move on. Once you've established that you won't be intimidated, say as little as possible to avoid antagonizing the assailant, especially if you suspect that he or she is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or is emotionally unstable. As long as you stay calm, you are the best judge of how dangerous yogr situation is. lf the attacker is only after your property or has a weapon, don’t resist. Property can be replaced. The NATIONAL CRIME PREVENTION COUNCIL recommends that you carry some "insurance" money in your pocket: a money clip clasping a folded five-dollar bill with several one-dollars bills tucked inside.
