What to do if you are in trouble

People are safe most of the time, but if you do get into trouble, get away as quickly as you can.

If you have a problem with someone:

  • Do not panic.
  • Do not stop and fight.
  • Get away as quickly as you can.
  • Use your personal attack alarm.
  • Let people know you are in trouble by screaming and shouting ‘Fire’.
  • Go to a shop or a busy public place as quickly as you can.
  • Ask for help from a person working in a shop or a police officer.
  • If anyone tries to grab your bag, let your bag go.
  • Your safety is more important than your bag.
  • If someone does bad things to you like calling you names, hurting you or stealing your things, tell someone you know as soon as you can or tell the police.
  • You can ask a friend or someone you know to go with you to the police station.Tell the police officer exactly what happened
