One of the problems with becoming more skilled with awareness and crime prevention is the fact that we often don’t have the opportunity to gain experience in a wide variety of situations. We can make sure we are aware on our way to and from work, to and from our car, to and from wherever, but at some point and time we need to move into unfamiliar situations. The same goes for crime prevention skills. We can max out our skills only so far in our common circumstances in life. At some point we have to venture out and look at things from a new angle to gain further understanding. I spent December 30, 2011 in a police car, in the front seat, learning about crime prevention and awareness.
