Crime Prevention and Personal Safety Awareness
You hear about it every night, read bout it in the newspaper every day-another murder, another rape, another home invasion or carjacking-random acts of violence. It probably won't happen to you, your family or even in your neighborhood-right? That is exactly what most victims thought before it happened to them and it is indicative of the common level of complacency and lack of awareness into which we sometimes slip. Don't let it happen to you! Take a proactive stance against crime and arrange a Street Smart Seminar for your company or organization today!
National Crime Prevention Task Force's Street Smart Seminar is the most popular program offered by our instructors. The Street Smart Seminar is a FREE, 60-minute seminar, designed to educate the individuals in your company or organization in areas relating to crime prevention and personal safety and awareness. During this information-packed, dynamic program, our instructor will do the following:
Educate you and your group on the most recent crimes, cons, scams and methods of victimization used by today's criminal, by delving into the criminal's thought process and informing you as to how and why the criminal selects his or her targets, teaching you the signs and situations to look out for during your daily travels.
Raise your awareness level by discussing some of the common mistakes that we tend to make during our day to day business that make us desirable targets to the criminal.
Teach you preventative methods and techniques related to personal safety and awareness to implement in your everyday life in order to make yourself a less attractive target to a criminal predator.
Instruct you on some simple things that you can do around your own home or apartment relating to existing locks, lights, and security systems as preventative measures against crimes such as burglaries or home invasions.
Give examples of some of the latest con games and phone scams that are presently being used by scam artists so that you and your loved ones will be more alert and cautious about information you give out over the phone.
Talk travel safety-specifically what you should do if you ever find yourself alone and broken down on the side of the road or what you should do if you ever question whether the person who just pulled you over is a real police officer. Tips on hotel/motel safety also included.
Discuss reactive measures to take if you should ever find yourself in a harmful situation such as a physical assault including a mugging, purse snatching, rape, carjacking, home invasion, or road rage.
Demonstrate and talk about some of the benefits and drawbacks of some of the most popular personal safety devices available on the market, including The Club, locks, personal attack alarms, firearms (unloaded and disarmed), stun guns, Mace and pepper sprays, so that if you are considering purchasing something for your personal or home protection, you are armed with enough information to make a decision that fits your lifestyle.
