PGPD offers sexual assault prevention tips

The Prince George's County Police Department wants to remind citizens to always be alert, and aware, and has a few sexual assault prevention tips.

- Don't let strangers inside your home.  If you have not called a repairman, don't let one inside.

- Be prepared to enter your home prior to getting to the door.  Have your key ready in your hand.

- Do not enter your home if a window or door as been forced or broken while you were gone.

- Keep car doors locked at all times while driving and when parked.

- Park your car in highly visible areas that will be well lighted if you return when it is dark.

- Avoid walking alone.  Walk in areas where other people are near.

- Stay in well lighted areas, and don't take shortcuts such as alleys and wooded areas.

- Be alert and aware.  If someone bothers you, don't be embarrassed to attract attention to yourself.  Scream and run.
