Being a victim of crime is a phenomenon which may not be common to everyone, but is of great probability of happening anytime in our lives. This is because no one can actually predict and control the actions of other people especially those who intend to commit them. It is therefore important, that for us not be victimized, we have to create a certain kind of security within us, that is, we police ourselves. It is not enough that we depend on our police force for our security, but more importantly, we have to be responsible enough to keep ourselves secure and not put ourselves in a compromising situation that could lead to victimization. In the Philippines, the Philippine National Police (PNP) (2006) stated that they are committed in ensuring public safety and reducing the fear and the incidence of crime in the community. However, they acknowledge that there are many things that each and every community member can do to reduce their chances of becoming a victim or prevent the incidence of crime from happening.
