“One of the creepiest and scariest experiences ever is the sense that someone is following you. A sixth sense can cause you to become alert about the foot fall, snapping twigs or other sounds that seem to keep occurring behind you, especially when it seems that nobody else is about. To avoid attack, use your common sense, quick wits and a few good tried and true methods as outlined here. The sooner you react in a self-protective manner, the better.
STEPS (in short; more detail on the mentioned website)
Do not panic. It won't be any help. Stay alert and aware.
Do things to draw attention to yourself: Yelling is recommended if other people might be around, scream if nothing else works.
If you're out by yourself a lot, it's a good idea to carry a personal alarm, especially if you're a female, you're elderly, you're frail or you're easily fearful. It might even be a good idea to learn self defense.
If you've been followed before, in the event of a recursion, tell someone about it afterwards and find ways to prevent it from happening again.
Run/jog toward where there could be help if possible (not into a dark area, alone unless you know the terrain perfectly); loudly shout warnings clearly ("Fire!" for example) to make people curious to come out to see; immediately report to the authorities about: who, where, when, what, how…”
“It's unlikely that most of us will be followed by a car, but chances are you've had a sneaking suspicion before that you'd like to put to rest. To regain your peace of mind, security and investigations expert Brandon Gregg offers up a few tricks to both detect if you're being followed and what you can do about it. Here's the gist:
If any of these techniques lead you to believe you're being followed, call the police. Police officers who also posted answers to this question agree that phoning the police is among the first things you should do if you believe you are, indeed, being followed.”
The above was derived from various sources. If something suspicious is noticed (LS1), also report it to the CPF (LS1) JOC at 0861 571 911. Or – get direct; get a radio: It can safe precious time in a crisis situation.
Also see the article below by ADT.
The following was received from ADT.
“On Friday, 28 June a resident in Pretoria East was followed home from the airport. As soon as the client parked in his garage, five armed men blocked the gate with their vehicle and held the man and his family at gunpoint before stealing their luggage.
This was not an isolated incident and occurs across the country. The SAPS have warned that this type of crime has become more prevalant over the past number of years, and ADT would like to urge you to keep a lookout for any suspicious vehicles which might be following you home.
