As part of its Crime Prevention Strategy the Guyana Police Force has issued Crime Prevention tips for the public.

The tips come with this warning from the Police: “Crime can happen anywhere. Protect yourself, others and property by staying alert, safety conscious and informed. Trust your instincts, if something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.”

JOGGING SAFETY

  2. Do not jog during dark hours.
  3. Vary your route and pattern.
  4. Remain alert. Don’t wear stereo earplugs or headphones.
  5. If you think you are being followed, go to a well-lit public area, store or residence and draw attention to yourself.
  6. Wear bright clothing.
  7. Do not jog near bushes and structures where someone could hide.
