Safety Awareness in an Urban Setting

Safety awareness is often an after-thought, until you become a victim of crime. Taking classes in a downtown location raises several issues of perception of safety/crime. Adopting some personal/property safety measures around parking, panhandlers, walking to and from your vehicle, vehicle break-ins, security guard escort and reporting crime and/or criminal activity can be taken to minimize being a victim of crime. This presentation will explore safety tips and awareness, and steps you can take to increase/enhance your sense of safety when attending classes at the MetroCenter. This presentation will involve a panel of some members of the MetroCenter Safety Task Force. The panel will be exploring safety tips/initiatives, and efforts to inform and raise safety awareness of constituents, increase Police and Red Shirts patrols around the building, and roles users of the MetroCenter can play in building a safe neighborhood/environment around the MetroCenter.
