I just read some crime prevention tips from the Durham Police Department. They geared the tips mostly to businesses, but the tips can help most people.
I want to mention two of the tips in particular.
Firstly, when recommending what to do after a robbery, they recommend to not talk to witnesses until after the police take official statements. I think many people may overlook this. If you talk to the witnesses first, then their testimony becomes much less valuable. A witness testimony can only fully corroborate another if it developed independently.
Secondly, they recommend to make sure to print the address of your building clearly on the front and back. Doing that will make it so police can respond to problems more quickly and easily. If emergency response teams have trouble seeing your address, it will delay them when they to find your building when called for an emergency.
What do you think?
