Do not leave pocketbooks, laptops, wallets, and other valuables unattended!
Always be alert and aware of your surroundings. Show a confident attitude.
Keep your doors locked. Do not prop open office doors, keyed bathroom doors, or exit doors (using any type of wedge) as this invites trespassers.

Make sure that all exterior doors and emergency exit doors are closed and unobstructed by debris.
Do not lend your keys or QC ID card to anyone. All desk drawers should be locked and secured when not in use.
If you sense that you may be in danger, follow your instinct and try to get out of the situation quickly.
