Most crime prevention experts will attest that there is no “silver bullet” that can guarantee a safe working environment. Because we live and work in very dynamic environments facing unpredictable challenges, factors and behaviors, we must be ever cognizant of our surroundings, consistently practice safe smart habits and learn to respect our intuition when it signals trouble.
We must also understand our role, responsibilities and ability in such a given situation and be prepared to respond accordingly.
