What do you mean by ''Violent Crimes''?

A voilent crime is not nescarsarily stealing from a shop, but it would be if somebody held the shop owner hostage with a gun or knife and told them to give them their money. Here is some information I found from Wikipedia, I pasted it here for you to have a read of: A violent crime or crime of violence is a crime in which an offender or perpetrator uses or threatens to use force upon a victim. This entails both crimes in which the violent act is the objective, such as murder, as well as crimes in which violence is the means to an end.

How do I stay safe?

Here are some tips:

  • Do NOT go outside by yourself late at night.
  • Do NOT go down any dark alleyways or paths that you are unsure of at night. Stay to the pavements.
  • Always keep a mobile phone on hand. You never know when it may come in handy!
  • Don't trust strangers.
  • Don't be afraid to say no.
  • Never take drugs.
