With the recent spate of street crimes, perhaps it is just as well that the AFP has seen fit to expand their online guide on how to keep safe in Canberra.
“Safety Out and About” (AFP website) Link
The guide contains some commonsense tips we should all know and some things you may not have thought of. I know I learnt a thing or two.
Kids, seniors, shift workers and… well everyone really should have a look.
P.S. If you do follow the advice about carrying a panic/attack alarm, be careful with it. Don’t do what my sister did and drop it outside a packed restaurant in Manuka at lunchtime, deafening al-fresco dinners with a 120db alarm while trying to figure out how to mute it. If anyone from Verve is reading this, she sends her apologies.
