  • Safety Tips for Young Women

    As my daughter became a young woman - I advised her on the importance of self defense.

    Yes, for young women, because most older women already learned from their mistakes and should pass it on to your daughters, younger friends and relatives. If you consider yourself an "older lady", you might consider these safety tips to be just common sense. But what is common sense to you, might not be to young women who are now entering into our society and are inexperienced in the ways of this crime infested world. So keep this in mind and pass it on to any young woman you might come across or even to your own daughter!

    Safety Tips for Preventing Crime
    • Avoid dark and empty places, like alleys.
    • Avoid walking alone at night, have someone you know accompany you.
    • Never drink from an opened container at bars or parties. Get your own drink and keep an eye on your drink.
    • Never accept a ride from a stranger. Your mom and dad told you this and it holds true for preventing crime as an adult too.
    • Meet someone new? Introduce him to your friends. Mention his hair color or eyes, any features that can be remembered by your friends. This can be crucial information if a crime is committed.
    • No security system... but have a car? Keep your car alarm by your nightstand. If you hear something suspicious, let your car alarm double as a home alarm. The whole neighborhood will be listening! (First test your alarm from your bedroom, to make sure it reaches your car.)
    • Look around and inside your parked car, before entering it.
    • If you live in an apartment complex:  Check your mail in a well lit area or wait till in the morning to check it.  Take your trash out at night if the area is well lit or wait until the morning.  If you have a dog, take him or her with you for your nightly tasks. Good exercise for your pet too!
    • If you take public transportation, make friends with women that you usually see on a regular basis. This makes for a good buddy system.
    • Always take a self defense product with you when you are out and about!
  • How to Get Rid of a Stalker

    If you have such problems as someone constantly following you, turning up unexpectedly in numerous places, sending copious e-mail or text messages, sending offensive or worrying snail mail items, leaving threatening and/or abusive phone messages, etc, then you may well have an issue with a person stalking you, for whatever reason. Here are some considerations to keep in mind to keep yourself safe and to rid yourself of the offending stalking behavior.

    1. 1

      "Use distance to protect yourself" If you suspect you may be being stalked, keep a significant distance between you and the suspected stalker. Note that you do not have to have proof someone is a stalker to protect yourself in this way, only a suspicion. Wearing reasonable foot wear will enable you to move away from a suspected stalker most quickly and will reduce the likelihood of tripping or falling. Try to be at least 25 yards or meters away from the suspect. Even ten feet may protect you from being abducted or attacked if that distance is maintained.

      2

    2. Keep a record of incidents. This may include letters, phone messages, emails, "lurking", or any contact the stalker has attempted to make. Record the date when each contact occurred, and keep this record in a safe place. If possible, make copies and give them to a trusted relative or friend, or place them in a safety deposit box. This can be used as evidence if you need to consult the police.
    3. 3

      Always state romantic or social rejections clearly. Responding with vague non-commitals such as, "I'm not interested in a relationship/being friends with you at this time," or "I'm dating someone else," can lead a person to believe that you would date or be friends with them, if the timing were right or if they keep pressing the issue.

    4. 4

      Warn the offender clearly. Tell the stalker in as few words as possible that s/he is not welcome to contact you. "Do NOT contact me again." Do not engage in lengthy dialogue with the suspected stalker. Never respond to any of the suspected stalker's contacts again. Your goal is to inform the stalker that their actions are harassment and warn them never to make contact with you from that point on. What you say must be credible. There may be a chance that the offender may cease and desist. Later record how and when you gave the warning along with any future incidents.

    5. 5

      Ignore and do not respond to further attempted interactions. Your stalker may try to deliberately rile you by making provocative comments if he or she gets close enough to you or uses messages to do so. Any response, even a negative one only feeds into the stalker's belief that he is 'getting' to you. Be strong and keep walking or refuse to press that recall button. Do not press reply. Just ignore the comments - otherwise, you are adding fuel to the fire. If the stalker is an ex, it may help to read How to End a Controlling or Manipulative Relationship.

    6. 6

      Never attempt to reason with or appease a stalker. This only reinforces his/her belief that his/her tactics are working.

    7. 7

      Always keep a cell phone on you, if possible. A phone that can record images and conversation is a plus.

    8. 8

      Keep emergency numbers on your cell phone and in different parts of your residence, as well as your vehicle.

    9. 9

      Change your contact information, including e-mail addresses and phone numbers. This will make it much harder for your stalker to leave messages for you.

    10. 10

      Another option is to get a new phone number and email, only give it to trusted individuals, and allow your current phone and email account to record messages from your stalker. For a non violent stalker, the ability to leave messages may make them content not to attempt any real life interactions. You can use these messages as evidence, if you decide to pursue legal action. If you feel uncomfortable listening to or reading the messages, have a trusted friend or family member screen and record them.

    11. 11

      Notify everyone about your situation and the identity of your stalker, if known. Stalkers thrive on secrecy and privacy. Notify your family, friends, neighbors and employers to not to give out your personal information, regardless of the innocuousness of the request or the identity of the questioner. Notify everyone to be cautious of any individual loitering around your neighborhood or place or employment or attempting to gain access to your workplace.

    12. 12

      At your workplace, have your phone calls screened, and do not open envelopes whose return address you do not recognize. Do not open unexpected packages. Never open anonymous mail.

    13. 13

      Consider having an account and a safety deposit box at a bank that you do not regularly patronize, which includes copies of all documents pertaining to the stalking behavior, important personal and financial papers, passport, social security and insurance information, and other vital information that you can access in the event of an emergency.

    14. 14

      Keep your mail private. Get a P.O. box if you are concerned that someone could easily gain access to your private information.

    15. 15

      Set up a password or photo ID system on all of your accounts (bank card, utilities, etc.)

    16. 16

      Follow the steps in How to Avoid Being Stalked on Social Media. This will prevent the stalker from spying on you and figuring out where you are and what you're doing. Be sure to set all of your social networking website information to "private" and make all attempts to block the stalker from accessing your information.

    17. 17

      Make home safety a priority. Install more secure door locks. Make your windows and doors burglar proof. Install security lights and a security system. Put your indoor lights on a timer system. A dog (or even a 'beware of dog sign') is a deterrent to home invasions. Ask police to do regular check ups of your property.

    18. 18

      If you live in an apartment or condominium, have a residence on the second floor or above, if possible.

    19. 19

      Move out temporarily. If you feel that your home is being watched, stay somewhere else, such as your parents' home, the home of other relatives or with friends. If you are living away from family and have not yet made solid friendships in your new town, seek advice from a campus counselor or from the local police as to some respite alternatives or to request some additional check-ups on your property.

    20. 20

      If you must move, try to be as under the radar as possible. Rent a moving van that does not have company logos, as a stalker could possibly contact that company in order to gain information about you. You can also move your possessions into a storage facility that is under a P.O. box address or the name of a third party, until you feel safe to claim them.

    21. 21

      Try to avoid being alone, if you can. A stalker is more likely to lose interest if they see that you always have company.

    22. 22

      Avoid adhering to a general schedule as much as possible. Do not go to the same gas station, restaurant or grocery store and do not go at the same times. If you exercise, do so at different times and on varying routes, or join a members only gym. Take your safety seriously and be responsible about your safety needs. Think ahead and be conscious of everything around you at all times. It may also help to read How to Thwart an Abduction Attempt.

    23. 23

      If you have children, make sure that they are always accompanied to and from school and activities. Notify your children's school(s) not to give out any of your information, and provide them a list of individuals who are allowed to pick up your children. Ask staff to request that anyone on that list provide photo ID to validate their identity. If you can not pick up your children, contact the school to let them know exactly who will be picking them up.

    24. 24

      Secure and protect your pet(s). Some stalkers, if they are unable to gain access to you, will target your animals. Do not leave pets outside unattended (even in a fenced in yard), and do not have pet doors. Have contact information for animal boarding homes and no-kill shelters, in case of an emergency if you are unable to take proper care of your pet(s).

    25. 25

      Avoid contact with family, friends and other associates of the stalker Unfortunately, these individuals may willingly or unknowingly provide information about you to the stalker, such as new addresses or contact information.

    26. 26

      Be confident. This means maintaining an air of self-assurance, holding your head high and walking tall and with purpose. Stalkers are more likely to continue when they see fear reflected in your body language - so watch this carefully and keep your body reactions slow, measured and calm.

    27. 27

      Seek help. Research online or contact your local police department for references to stalking hotlines/counselors. If you are at school, go and see a teacher, a counselor or the principal immediately and explain the situation. If you are at university or college, seek assistance from campus security or a counselor. You also may wish to consider going straight to the police and reporting the incident(s) and having a report drawn up. It will at least allow you to explore your legal options and obtain some advice on how to act next.

    28. 28

      Prepare an emergency plan, that you can easily utilize in case of a break in or an attack. You must have a plan in place that allows you to protect yourself as much as possible. Have a safe place where all family members can arrange to meet in event of an emergency (the location only being known to a very trusted relative or friend). At this safe location, have needed supplies in a 'flight kit' (money, clothing, medication etc.), as well as emergency numbers for police, legal assistance, and abuse/stalking assistance.

    29. 29

      If you were previously domestically involved with your stalker, try to avoid the following: legal mediation, joint therapy, shared custody of children, face-to-face child exchanges. If you are obligated to come face to face with the stalker (at a court hearing) safeguard yourself as much as possible. In the days prior to and especially following an obligated public meeting, be extra vigilant of your surroundings and safety.

    30. 30

      Consider carrying pepper spray. Carry it in a proper manner and familiarize yourself with how it is used. Only consider carrying a firearm if you have proper training in their use and are in compliance with your state's firearm laws. Keep in mind that any weapon that you carry could be used against you during an attack. This is a subject that you should discuss with law enforcement and an abuse/staking counselor.

    31. 31

      Discuss with police and abuse/stalking counselors the possibility of obtaining a temporary restraining order (TRO) or protective order. Keep in mind that a TRO or an Order or Protection is to initiate and assist the legal process -- it can not physically protect you from a stalker who is inclined towards violence. You must be responsible for your safety even with a TRO or OP in place. Non violent and violent stalkers react differently to TROs and OPs, as do those stalkers who have had romantic/sexual involvement with their victims. Based on your history with the stalker and the pattern of behavior he/she has been demonstrating towards you, research TROs to decide whether it will assist you in your situation or not. An abuse/stalking counselor or victim's advocate may better assist you in determining what the best options for your situation are.

    It's true that with advancements in health people are living longer than ever before. Many seniors today are living active, robust lives.

    Safety

    As we get older our bodies change. We move a little slower, don't see quite as well and our bodies begin to lose some of the core strength needed to maintain balance. Combined, these changes can lead to accidents such as falls, breaks and sprains. Safety for seniors is important and there are plenty of things you can do now so you can continue to live a healthy and active lifestyle for a very long time.

    Create a safe home

    So you can continue to enjoy the independence of living in your own home, start this by walking through your home looking for potential area that are or could become a safety hazard. Pay attention to things such as stairs, loose electrical cords, slippery areas (particularly the bathroom), and dimly lit areas. Although accidents are unintentional, there are still many things you can do to prevent them from occurring and promote seniors' safety.

  • Bill to Combat Sexual Violence on College Campuses Receives Widespread Support

    For Immediate Release
    April 15, 2011
    Contact: S. Daniel Carter
    (202) 684-6471

     

    Alison Kiss“I have listened to and worked with many students who are finding their voice after being victimized. This legislation will provide guidance for institutions to truly educate students about their rights and to empower victims of violence through the process.” - Alison Kiss, Executive Director, Security On Campus, Inc.

    Washington, DC - Security On Campus, Inc. (SOC), the nation’s leading non-profit devoted to improving college and university campus safety, today joined with a diverse coalition of nearly 20 other organizations to endorse the federal Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act or Campus SaVE Act (S. 834). The measure, introduced Thursday by U.S. Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Patty Murray (D-WA), will update the Jeanne Clery Act to provide a better framework for the sexual assault education and victims’ rights currently offered by colleges and universities, and expand them to also cover domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

     

    “Sexual violence is a tragic and harsh reality on college campuses throughout the country,” said Senator Casey. “We must ensure that when we send our sons and daughters off to colleges and universities, we are providing every means necessary for them to learn in a safe environment.”

     

    Between 20 and 25 percent of women in college will be the victim of a completed or attempted rape before they graduate according to the U.S. Department of Justice. College age women are at greatest risk for experiencing nonfatal intimate partner violence, and people age 18 and 19 experience the highest rates of stalking.

     

    “I am particularly excited about the introduction of the Campus SaVE Act after sitting through many Take Back the Night events on campuses this month,” said Alison Kiss, SOC’s Executive Director. “I have listened to and worked with many students who are finding their voice after being victimized. This legislation will provide guidance for institutions to truly educate students about their rights and to empower victims of violence through the process. It also has the potential to break down silos and open the door for collaboration of multiple campus departments.”

     

    “We’ve come a long way since sexual violence on campus was first recognized as a national challenge and the original Campus Sexual Assault Victims’ Bill of Rights was introduced 20 years ago eventually becoming a part of the Clery Act,” said S. Daniel Carter, SOC’s Director of Public Policy. “The numbers prove we still have a long way to go, however, and SaVE will move us closer to eliminating the scourge of sexual violence on campus. Senator Casey consulted with the nation’s leading experts as well as survivors of campus violence and students to determine the best possible framework.”

     

    The Campus SaVE Act will update the Clery Act’s provisions to reflect the lessons learned about what works to prevent campus violence –

    • Transparency in the amount of intimate partner violence and stalking is increased – domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking would be added to the crime statistics reported by colleges annually.
    • Programs built around primary prevention – changing campus culture so that intimate partner violence and stalking won’t be tolerated – and bystander intervention – so that campus community members are empowered to safely intervene – would be promoted.
    • Victims would be entitled to be clearly informed of their rights in writing, and these rights would include prompt and equitable disciplinary proceedings (consistent with existing Title IX sexual harassment and violence guidelines), help with enforcing a protective order, and assistance with changing academic, working, or living arrangements.
    • Institutions would be assisted in carrying out their responsibilities by technical assistance to be provided by the U.S. Departments of Education and Justice, and information about best practices provided by these agencies in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

     

    “I firmly believe the Campus SaVE Act represents a turning point in our nation’s history of handling campus sexual violence,” said sexual assault survivor and advocate Laura L. Dunn. “With the passage of this Act I can look forward to the day where campus victimization is handled properly and justice provided to those who have suffered. The harm of a sexual assault can be mitigated by a supportive and protective campus environment, and I hope this Act cultivates such a desire in universities throughout our nation.”

     

    SaVE is also endorsed by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape, Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER), the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV), Break the Cycle, Casa de Esperanza, the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, the National Center for Victims of Crime, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the National Dating Abuse Helpline, the National Domestic Violence Hotline, the National Network to End Domestic Violence, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, the Family Violence Prevention Fund, Jewish Women International, the Women of Color Network, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), and Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment (PAVE).

     

    About Security On Campus, Inc.

    Security On Campus, Inc. (SOC), a national non-profit organization, was founded in 1987 by Jeanne Clery’s parents, Connie & Howard, after she was raped and murdered in her on-campus residence hall at college, by a fellow student whom she did not know. SOC worked to secure passage of the Jeanne Clery Act, originally known as the Campus Security Act, in 1990 and continues to be the nation's leading voice for the improvement of campus community safety. SOC is based in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania near Philadelphia.

    1. Pamela Anderson, a Stalker, and Pepper Spray - who won?

      Pamela Anderson, a Stalker, and Pepper Spray - who won?

      Pamela Anderson, stalker, and pepper spray saga

      News from England, a country where regular citizens (or "subjects" as the queen calls them), like you and I, are not allowed to carry pepper spray. Yes, pepper sprays in all shapes and forms are banned in England, one can not buy pepper spray in England. Arguably only Police can handle pepper spray cans.

      Especially when they have to defend a celebrity and a former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson. She was in England performing at various venues. After her performance in the "Alladin" show, where she played Genie, she boarded a train in Liverpool. An unnamed suspect, allegedly her stalker, also boarded the same train. And then ...

      Pamela Anderson, 43, moved along the carriage as the alleged stalked appeared to approach her after following her on board.

      The Police says that he's been following her to different venues since she arrived in England. The man is said to have been warned previously to stay away from the star.

      Eventually police was called and the cops had to subdue the guy with pepper spray after he resisted arrest.
      It worked like a charm.

      A witness said: “A load of them jumped on him and sprayed him before hauling him off by his arms and legs.”
      Pammi looked terrified as four officers carted the long-haired 21-year-old, dressed all in black, along the platform at Liverpool’s Lime Street station.

      It all worked out great for Pamela Anderson. Good for her! But if do not rely on four police officers readily available to take care of your stalker -- just go buy pepper spray and carry it at all times. You'll be much better off and safer too. Even if you do look like Pamela and attract stalkers but do not have her star power, to attract police officers everywhere you go.

      You can get pepper spray here while you still can.

    2. Use Your Car Alarm for Home Security!

      You don't have a home security system? No problem! Just remember one thing when you drive home tonight, take your car keys to bed with you!

      It's as simple as that. If you hear something suspicious or an intruder late at night, simply turn on your car alarm. It will start beeping and alert the entire neighborhood! Burglars don't like all the racket and attention and will simply turn around and leave. The alarm will continue to sound until the battery of your car dies or you turn the alarm off.

      One more thing that should be kept in mind, if you have a car alarm. Many times women and men are assaulted while they are walking toward their vehicle in parking lots. This is another situation when it is convenient to set off your car alarm. It would make people notice your car and you!

      Pass the word around! It keeps your home safe and beats the fees of installing a home security system!

    3. Jogging With Pepper Spray

      I got an email from a reader who became concerned about safety when a neighbor was attacked on an evening jog.

      This lady jogs the beach every day after work around 6pm. Up until the time change it was always light outside during her run.

      The other night she made her way down to the beach, turned on the iPod and started her 2 mile route.

      So it was dark, she had earphones in, the music cranked-up, and no one was around…or so she thought.

      During her cool-down a man grabbed her from behind and tried to force her to the ground. She never even heard him coming.

      Luckily she was able to fight him off and run for help.

      I immediately suggested the Mace Hot Walkers. They are 1lb walking weights with a secret weapon…Pepper Spray. Just point the weight at an attacker’s face and shoot! You even get one Free replacement canister.

      Don’t get caught unprepared. Or you could be running for your life.

    4. Tips for the Single Who Likes to Mingle

      It’s Saturday evening, people are making plans to get out and be social. Maybe you’re heading to a favorite pub or night club or even a good sports bar to watch your favorite team.

      Whatever it is you’re engaging in this weekend, here are some tips to keep you safe:

      - Let someone know where you’re going or what your plans are. If anything happens, at least someone knows where to start looking for you.

      - Park in well-lit, highly traveled areas.

      - Stick together. A group, even just 2 people, is a harder target for criminals. If you do seperate, set a specific time and place to meet.

      - Watch your drink. If your drink is out of sight for any time, throw it away and get a new one. It only takes a second for someone to spike a drink.

      - Know your limit if you consume alcohol. If you are suddenly intoxicated after only a couple drinks, get help or find someone you trust immediately.

      - Do not drink and drive. Call a cab. You will save yourself the legal trouble and you aren’t risking anyones life.

      And always carry a self defense tool. Even if it’s a small pepper spray, it could save your life.
