Crime and the fear of crime create special problems for the elderly. Crime prevention is everyone's responsibility, not just a job for law enforcement. Seniors can learn how to protect themselves from crime by following these simple, commonsense suggestions. Share these tips with your neighbors and friends, to make it tough for criminals to work in your neighborhood.

AT HOME . . .
• Vary your daily routine.
• Never open your door automatically. Install and use a peephole.

WALKING . . .
• Stay away from buildings and doorways; walk in well-lighted areas.

WHILE SHOPPING . . .
• Carry your purse very close to you . . . don't dangle it from your arm. Never leave your purse in a shopping cart. Never leave your purse unattended.

IN YOUR CAR . .
• At stop signs and traffic lights, keep the car in gear.

BANKING . . .
• Never withdraw money from your bank accounts for anyone except YOURSELF. Be wary of con artists and get-rich schemes that probably are too-good-to-be- true.
