      Don't wear headphones while walking - for two reasons: 1) you don't advertize "hey thugs, I have an iPhone" and 2) you'll be more aware of your surroundings.

      Engage people you pass on the sidewalk. I find that a quick look in their eyes and a simple hello sends the message "I see u, and recognize u and could identify u by your face, clothes, tats etc if u harm my person."

      Perhaps an alarm system, or posting alarm signs on your propery along with motion sensor lighting?

      Rescuing a dog from a shelter

      Carrying a personal alarm that when u pull the pin, it makes a very loud, high pitched noise

      If u notice anything out of the ordinary (potted plants on ur porch are re-arranged, etc) quickly put them back into place to signal to would be robbers casing your house that u are indeed in town

      Never hesitate to call 911 and go with your gut if u see anything suspicious!

      Be safe out there and good luck!
