As home to roughly 6 million people, metro Atlanta comes with its fair share of crime. While no individual or community is immune, there are ways to reduce risks:
• Stay aware of surroundings and always listen to your gut when internal alarms go off.
• Always be prepared. With non-violent self-defense tools on the market, including pepper spray or a personal alarm, you’re able to carry a greater sense of protection if a dangerous situation were to arise.
• As car thefts and break-ins increase, diminish the chances of being targeted by keeping items out of sight, or leave at home instead.
