What Is Personal Security?

Personal Security involves taking steps to keep yourself safe, and protecting yourself from situations that are potentially violent or criminal. Personal Security is important because property can be replaced, but you are irreplaceable.

Like other methods of crime prevention, personal security involves recognizing, anticipating, and assessing the risk of a crime occurring. In other words, what situations are potentially threatening to you and likely to put you in peril? Once you have identified a risk, you can take steps to remove or reduce it. Being aware and informed is important to preventing crimes from occurring, which is why the Belleville Police Service offers the following safety tips.
