I happened to interact with a SHO who came to me for checkup. I gave him preventive health tips and asked him to reciprocate with some tips that we could take to prevent thefts and most importantly be safe.

Here are some safety tips from a senior police officer as part of the Delhi Police Week celebrations held on the occasion of its Raising Day on February 16, 2018.

·         Never throw empty boxes, empty shopping bags etc. in your garbage. The rag pickers would identify that you have done a lot of shopping that day.
·         Jewelry is hard cash. You do not show your hard cash on the roads. Wear jewelry only in functions and not on the roads.
·         Most rag pickers in Delhi are from Bangladesh and are an organized group.
·         Most people in Delhi are educated and intelligent. Think twice before you say: "bechara"
·         Do not travel or drive alone on the roads between 10pm and 6am. 
·         Never stop your car in areas with no habitation or light in the night.
·         Always check the back seat before getting into the car.
·         Vishwasghaat Wahin Hota hai, Jahan Vishwas hota hai.
·         Never indulge in road rage; say sorry and try to defuse the situation.
·         People walking aimlessly in any colony should be regarded with suspicion; they may be on a “recce” identifying places for future crimes.
·         Never keep cash or jewelry in your house.
·         Never take out a single Rs 2000/- note from your pocket, from a bundle of notes. It tells people that you have a habit of carrying cash.
·         Never give someone ready cash on spot at home; always say I will get it from bank and give you next day or so.
·         Always keep one room in the house out of reach of the maid servants.
·         Always keep your door locked even if you are at home.
·         Always know your neighbors.
·         If you are not going to be in town, always inform a trusted neighbor.
·         Do not let a stranger in your home on the pretext of making a phone call.
·         Never keep any expensive items in the car visible to people.
·         Never keep your bags open in public places, especially in temples, cremation places, prayer meetings etc.
·         Thieves may look like normal people, well dressed and speaking fluent English
·         Gold and cash once stolen will get distributed or melted within no time.
·         Do not become friends with unknown people, even if they behave very friendly.
·         Do not accept any prasad from any stranger.
·         Never accept lift from strangers. Never get into a car with a stranger for any reason.
·         Tell your children never to admit to being home alone on the phone or to someone at the door.
