If you go out, this is for your Safety
So remember that a high level of
responsibility of yourself and your valuable belongings rests on you
while you’re out. Best precaution is to act sensibly and tactfully by
taking stock of the overall situation.
We can simply imagine the instant response of somebody who returns
home only to find his home plundered with everything in a mess and the
garden mangled beyond recognition.
Most obviously, our house and the assets we have in it are part and
parcel of our life. We all know that we must identify and be alert to
any offenders who are poised to grab our property unlawfully by force or
by threat of force. A person who battles with a tight schedule of work
has to use a vehicle to save time and to get everything done within the
shortest possible time.
Whenever we go to work or to the place of business, we must not
follow a set pattern of leaving home time to leave home and of using the
route. This same pattern of work will make it far too easy for the
enemies to study the target person better and plan their sinister moves
accordingly in order to trap him.
So, remember to constantly change your route, time of leaving home,
time of returning home and places where you often visit so that a person
who intends deliberate harm on you may see his plans miscarry.
A man who lies in waiting to burgle your house in your absence, will
spoil all his strategies if you follow an unpredictable routine to
confuse anyone who unnecessarily marks your movements.
Moreover, it is advisable to keep those at home well informed of the
full details of your trip, those who accompany you, the reason or
purpose of the trip and the time you hope to be back at home. Those at
home should be having access to the telephone number and the address of
the particular destination of yours because they can inform the police
in case of an unpleasant situation.
Most important. Never allow anybody to unnecessarily inquire about
the personal trips you make and avoid making announced visits to a
particular place more often because this can be a sure tool for a thief
to take advantage of you. One should be particularly careful of one’s
baggage or parcels when travelling in a passenger bus because it is a
golden opportunity for a thief to make away with anything he can put his
If you want to keep your parcel with a person seated, you had better
keep careful watch over until you reach the destination. In many cases,
there are passengers who clandestinely check the pockets of a bag or
reach for something valuable in the parcel they have been asked to hold
until the owner succeeds in getting a seat or reaches his destination.
There are people who are highly accomplished in stealing things from
baggage or parcels and getting off suddenly without leaving any trace of
what they have done or where they have gone.
It is sensible to prepare yourself for any unlawful activity likely
to come from robbers and pick pockets who appear regularly at public
places and passenger buses. It is far better to keep change for bus fare
ready with you before getting on a bus. While you are opening your purse
and display unnecessary excitement or activity over change for bus fare
you - might be an easy prey for a pickpocket. Be quick to inform the
conductor of any suspicious behaviour of any person likely to reach for
However it is better to keep parcels and baggage with you because
there is a certain possibility for you to get off the bus forgetting the
belongings. Apart from that, it is not so prudent or tactical to take a
big sum of money or valuable jewellery in a highly packed public vehicle
or to leave those valuable parcels to somebody’s care. Equally
inadvisable is your instant decision to keep valuable parcels on racks
of the public vehicle for your own convenience.
