The following are tips that can help you avoid becoming a victim of a crime when you are out and about, or working at your job.
1. Carry your wallet in an inside jacket pocket or side trouser pocket, never in the rear pocket.
2. Carry pocketbooks in the bend of your elbow, held close to your body. If there is a long strap, wrap it around the bag. Carry credit cards and cash in your pockets.
3. Keep pocketbooks on your lap when dining out, not dangling over the back of a chair. Avoid placing pocketbooks on hooks on the back of a fitting room or bathroom door, where someone can easily reach over and remove them.
4. Leave valuables and important papers, such as jewellery and passports, secured in your hotel's safe deposit box. Never leave these items unattended in your room or carry large sums or cash on your person.
5. Be wary of unexpected persons coming to your hotel room. Never open the door to unsolicited room service or maintenance people. Contact the front desk if you have any doubts.
6. If you schedule a meeting with a potential client, research the company and the individual with whom you are meeting. Meet in a public place such as a restaurant.
7. Make sure that luggage only given to a member of the hotel's bell staff and a receipt is issued for stored luggage. Never leave luggage or other expensive items, unattended at Airport or Taxi Stands.
8. Prefer Prepaid Taxi Booth for hired transportation. In this system you have to pay in advance for Taxi Fare which is already approved by Department of Transport, Govt. of West Bengal
