Protect yourself in a parking garage/lot:

      – Pay attention while walking through a parking garage/lot. Keep your head up, look confident, and be aware of your surroundings.

      – Always lock your car, set vehicle theft devices, and hide all valuables out of sight before leaving your car.

      – If you see a suspicious person while walking out to your car, go back inside the building you came from and call law enforcement.

      – If you know you are going to leave late, make sure to move your vehicle up closer to the building while it is still light outside.

      – Ask for an escort or try to leave the building in groups.

      – Do not talk on the phone or listen to music while walking out to your car.

      – Do not walk right next to other vehicles while walking through the parking garage/lot and walk only where you can see in between cars. 

              Any time you feel uncomfortable, it is better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to a loved one’s or your safety. Make sure you realize that things can happen even when you least expect it or do not feel like you are in an uncomfortable situation. So, it is always smart to get used to following such safety tips and put them in to practice.
