1. Keep cell phones and wallets in safe places

Avoid large pockets and bags to store your cell phone, wallet and personal documents. This can make it easier for thieves to do so, as it makes the victim’s belongings more accessible. Give preference to internal pouches, commonly called doleiras.

2. Not everywhere is safe to use a cell phone

Seeing police officers and vehicles with sirens flashing on the sides of the Vale do Anhangabaú does not mean that the place is 100% safe. Criminals, unlike the police, will be in the audience. When you want to take photos or check WhattsApp, prefer to do it in safer places, such as near vehicles.

3. Avoid being in crowds

The more crowded the local area, the easier it will be for some criminals to act. Areas closer to the stage tend to be busier and should therefore be avoided. At the same time, it is important to avoid empty paths within the Centre, to avoid the risk of robberies. Also avoid passing through narrow and easily crowded corridors, such as Rua Direita and 24 de Maio. Prefer wider roads.

5. Choose your “refuge points”

Just as near vehicles are quieter places for those who browse social media, choose some places where you feel more comfortable, such as inside bars and restaurants. In general, people feel freer and are less attentive when, for example, they are queuing for public toilets. It is good to remember that it is in this moment of inattention that criminals take the opportunity to prey on their victims.
