>avoid places known for being dangerous
If you know some districts have bad reputation, there are often crimes happening there, just avoid it if you can.>walk in group if you have to go somewhere less safe
Ask your friends or boyfriend. You might mix it with some other activity like visiting restaurant later or something.>watch your drinks
Don't leave your drinks out of your sight. Don't accept food/drinks from people you don't trust (no, friend of a friend is not trustworthy) or when you don't know where the drink came from and don't see others drinking from the same source.>carry pepper spray or firearm if you can
It won't protect you from sudden hit to the back of the head, nothing will, but if you see the danger coming you can shut someone down or scare them away. For example:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-XYwRxKqu0>act confident
Many criminals aren't dumb and they know every action has risk so they prey on the weak and scared, most home invasions take place when home owners are away etc. Also if you look at the crime statistics, most of the time victim knows perpetrator, lot of violence actually has a reason so it's good to keep being on good terms with people around you.>care about your privacy
This minimizes risk of stalking and other bad stuff.>exercise fast and precise information passing to police
Ask friend to occasionally, out of blue task you to quickly tell what is happening like you called police. Police can't teleport so in lot of cases they are late and their job is not to protect, but to chase criminal after the crime. Sometimes police has no forces available to dispatch. Basically calling police is a dice roll and whether they'll be there in a minute or half hour depends on simple coincidence: how far are they from your place at the time.
The most important are:
Your name - even if your call gets interrupted, they have your name so they might be able to try to contact some relative who may know where you should be. If something happens to you and worried relatives will be calling police, it's more likely they'll connect these two calls.
Your place - even if you get interrupted or have to put the phone down, they know who you are and where to send patrol. They assume something must be wrong because most of the time people call police because something is wrong.
What is happening - if you provide more information on what is happening, dispatchers will know what exactly to send and what advice to give you.
Who is perpetrator - as mentioned earlier, police often doesn't stop the crime because they can't do miracles, but bring criminals to justice. If you know who it is, it'll be easier to find them. If you don't know, try to tell how they look. It's the least important information because CCTVs are everywhere these days and there is high chance perpetrator will be caught on some cam when fleeing the crime scene.
Let's say you are in the mall with your friend and they task you to quickly pass info to police. You try to quickly reply something like:>My name is Stacy Thundercunt, I'm in a mall on Tfwnobf Street 13, Crystal Cafetown, please send help, there is angry incel coming close and threatening me, I think he wants to rape me, he has black hoodie with /r9k/ on it, bowlcut and jeans
As for fights >>30446
is sadly right girls are at big disadvantage, on top of that it's often chaotic. Best you can do is to scream for help, kick balls, scratch eyes and aim for other vulnerable places and try to get away.
Honestly OP, did they not teach you this in school? We had things like not trusting strangers and things listed here drilled to our heads since elementary school.
