Security is for everyone to take serious, which is why leaving it to the government alone is insufficient, unwise and risky, as they won't be there all the time to protect you or your loved ones.
There will always be people whose intentions will be negative, evil and pure stone cold. This is why an awareness or tips on how to protect and defend yourself when necessary is very important.
For starters, it's very crucial to let another person know where you are or plan to be, so you are certain, another person is aware of your location and possibly who you are with. You never can tell when it will come good.
Also, be careful not to walk alone at night in isolated areas known for criminal activities, the movies are spot on with these, "crime thrives when the right conditions are in play".
However, it sucks not to be able to call for help when you need it, to avoid that, it's advisable to save emergency numbers of law enforcement agencies, who are trained to respond accordingly. You might just be a dial away from saving a life.
Always be watchful and vigilant of your surroundings, not that you become paranoid and crazy, but sometimes we can spot danger before it even happens, all it takes is more awareness and alertness.
Don't be caught off guard, security is in the hands of all of us. Stay Safe!!!
