Be Aware of Your Surroundings
There are many multi-use trails in District parks, and many of them offer secluded and scenic areas. While using the trails, it is important to remember that the parks receive over six million visitations each year, so it is not unusual to encounter other people, even in seemingly secluded areas.

Always Be Alert
If you see anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable, trust your instincts and go the other way. Better yet, share your outdoor experience by walking with friends or family members and report anything you feel is suspicious to the park police.

Burglars Are Park Users, Too
Burglars use parks to prey on those who are using the park legitimately. Remember to lock your car and do not leave valuables in the passenger compartment. Auto burglars sometimes frequent park areas because they know that people hiking, fishing, boating and other park users may be a considerable distance away from their cars for extended periods of time.

Park Tips To Avoid Car Theft:
  •   Never leave your car running unattended

  •   Never leave any keys in the car or ignition or in hide-a-key boxes

  •   Always roll up your windows and lock the car

  •   Never leave valuables in plain view, even if car is locked.
           Place all valuables in trunk.

  •   Always park in well-lighted areas, when possible

  •   Install a mechanical device that locks the steering wheel, column, or brakes

  •   Investigate the purchase of a vehicle theft tracking/security system

  •   Never leave personal identification documents, vehicle title, or credit cards
            in vehicle

  •   If your vehicle is stolen, report it to the Park Police immediately
