PERSONAL SAFETY: General Safety Tips (while at home)

Cleveland Police Foundation Safety Tip of the Month

(Plain Press, September 2015)

1 – Keep your doors locked while at home or away. Don’t leave keys hidden outside. Install a peephole viewer in your door and don’t open it without knowing who is on the other side. If a stranger comes to the door and asks to use the phone, have them wait outside and make the call for them.

2 – Don’t give out personal information over the phone or in writing, and remind children not to give out information.

3 – Don’t offer information to wrong number callers. Instead, ask them what number they were trying to reach. On answering machines, simply request that callers leave their name and number.

4 – Hang up immediately on any threatening or harassing phone calls. If the caller persists, call police and phone company immediately.

The Safety Tip of the Month is a service of The Cleveland Police Foundation in partnership with the Ohio Crime Prevention Association provided to the Plain Press courtesy of Cleveland Police Captain Keith Sulzer.
