Staying Safe

Some of the things I've learned over the past few years from police or other is:

-Bring only the things you need to school. This means leaving your credit cards, driver's license, debit card at home if you're not using them. (Helps you save money too from not making unnecessary shopping)
-Don't use a laptop case, put it in your backpack. What they can't see, they won't take.
-Put your wallet in the very back of your backpack, not the easy-to-access front pouch. How many times have you been able to put notes or funky things into a friend's front pouch without them noticing?
-If you have a purse, make sure that it zips close on top and has a zipper side pouch inside.
-When you're eating, or studying, or sleeping, never put your backpack next-to, behind, or under you. Always have it on your lap or on the desk or something in front of you.
-Have a list of phone numbers from your credit card companies/etc at home. If anything happens, you can call them right away. It's alright if you don't have your account numbers with you. They can find it for you.
