The Los Santos Police Department has put together useful tips on various ways to protect yourself in given situations involving:
  • Personal Safety
    • Walk with authority, look ahead and scan your surroundings.
    • Do not walk in poorly lit areas.
    • If approached by someone in a car, change your direction and enter a crowded store or business.

    • Be alert to someone who asks for directions and/or continues to engage you in conversation.
    • Obey all of the robbers orders. Keep communication with the robber short and simple. Do NOT argue.
    • Observe your attackers appearance, type of weapon used, and type of vehicle so you can accurately describe them to police officers.
    • Immediately report the incident to POLICE and do not hang up until police arrive on location.
  • Home Safety

    • Always keep your doors and windows locked day and night.
    • Always keep your garage door closed.
