Crime and Disorder
Make calls on your mobile in a private place if you can - dont keep it in full view. Remember, if you are wearing an iPod or mp3 player you could be unaware of things going on around you and not hear someone approaching. Just be aware.
You shouldn't let these things stop you going out, but if you know how to stay safe you'll feel a lot more confident.
