Personal and Pedestrian Safety

 

Personal Safety
 
The Rochelle Park Police Department has provided a list of suggestions below for personal safety. In many cases, people become victims of crime because they inadvertently put themselves in danger.
 
These suggestions may help deter crime:
 
  • Keep car doors locked while driving
  • Lock your car when you park it
  • Park your car, and walk in well-lit areas
  • Check car before getting in
  • If you think you’re being followed, try to get to a nearby store or other well-lit public area.
Pedestrian Safety
 
The following guidelines are provided courtesy of the Rochelle Park Police Department for pedestrians, to ensure their safety:
 
  • Carry or wear something white or reflective if walking at night
  • Cross only at crosswalks
  • Before crossing any street be sure to look both ways, and be sure the way is clear before crossing
  • Cross only on proper traffic signal
  • Be especially watchful for turning cars
  • Never enter the roadway from between parked cars
  • Where there is no sidewalk, walk on the left side of the street, facing oncoming traffic
  • When walking your pet, be sure you have the animal on a short leash and under control at all times. Pets may dart out in front of passing vehicles if they are not
  • Joggers should always wear something reflective, should carry identification, and should let someone know their intended route
  • Motorists: Be alert and careful when driving around town
