Essentials of Personal Safety provides an information foundation on which to build increased safety into your life and thereby prevent crime. Criminal psychology is discussed,along with Pre-Incident Indicators which are “red flags” that tip a potential crime victim that “something may be about to happen!” A number of cases will be discussed. Most of them are local to Connecticut. We will talk about What happened, Why it happened, and Options the victim may have to avoid / handle the crime. Through this discussion we build up our self-confidence that we need not be “bullied” by criminals; that staying safe is not an impossible task in our world today. Essentials of Personal Safety is a “preview” of the Refuse To Be A Victim Program which discusses safety and crime prevention in the various areas of your life: Home, Auto, Shopping and Travel, Work, Technological and Medical. Knowledge IS Power when you use it. When you use this knowledge, you will be able to Deter, Delay, Detect and Deny crime!! I look forward to meeting you!!!
