10 Spring Break Safety Tips for College Students

 

Each year, upwards of 1.5 million students go on spring break, a peak travel season that poses many risks for college-aged men and women. The truth is that the spring break environment - however fun - can lead to negative consequences such as sexual assault, alcohol poisoning, serious injuries and more. 

 

1.  Arrive safely – Driving through the night to make it to your destination is common for spring breakers. But the National Safety Council says traffic death rates are three times greater at night than during the day. If you can’t avoid night driving, have at least one person stay awake to talk to the driver. 

2.  Don’t take chances at your hotel. Lock the doors, and secure important belongings like passports and wallets in the safe.  SABRE’s door stop alarm is portable and can alert you if someone tries to break-in. Make sure it’s in your suitcase this spring break.

3.  Be smart about who you give personal information to - don’t tell new acquaintances your hotel or room number. You never know who has innocent or dangerous intentions.

4.  Make sure you know the name and address of your hotel or take a hotel business card out with you so you can give to a cab driver. This is especially important if you don’t speak the local language.

5.  The Buddy System – it works! We do NOT recommend you leave a party with a stranger, it’s always best to take a friend with you. If for whatever reason you do leave without your friends, give them details about where you’re going and when to expect you back.

6.  Practice safe drinking – take turns so that one friend in the group per night will plan on minimal drinking to look out for everyone. Other good habits – watching your cup or glass, and only accept drinks that you’ve watched get made or poured in front of you.

7.  If you need help ask for it. If there’s an emergency don’t rely on a bystander to call for help. Call for help to be sure first responders are notified.

8.  Hydrate & wear sunscreen! Heat stroke and melanoma aren’t happy spring break thoughts, but too much time in the sun can leave you dehydrated with an increased risk of sun burns. Take your SPF and a bottle of water to the beach!

9.  If traveling outside of the country, be sure to look up the address or contact information for the American consulate or U.S. Embassy in the country where you’re headed. Be sure to tell friends and relatives in the U.S. of your travel itinerary and try to check in with them often. Also, take a copy of all credit cards and your passport with you in case they are stolen. Call your credit card and cash cards in advance to let them know you’ll be out of the country so they won’t put a stop on your account. Plus, the best exchange rates are with these cards, not in exchanging dollars for the local currency.

10.  Carry a small, practical, and easy to use personal protection tool like pepper spray or a personal alarm.

Getting to know MBPD # Behind the Badge

Brittany Guinovart has only been with the department for one year but is already making a difference. The idea for Operation Ted E. Bear originated with Brittany and with her guidance, the department has steadily built the program. Brittany recently graduated from Florida International University with a Bachelors in Communications, and was close to receiving a minor in psychology. Like every typical college student's story, she definitely worked odd jobs through college. Now you'd never guess it but Brittany was a clown... an actual red nose, big shoes clown. How does someone stumble upon a job like that? The story is quite funny, as she didn't even know that was the position she was interviewing for. Brittany was under the impression the interview was for a secretarial position at a party place. She was given the job and the description of her tasks, which seemed odd for a secretary, and then she heard the word "clown." Her first thought was, "Those still exist?" Her next thought was "No." But for the sake of a funny story she decided to give it a shot, and low and behold she was actually good at it. Brittany performed shows every weekend, picking on unsuspecting individuals in the audience. A few months after she started working with Miami Beach PD, she put her clowning days behind her.

 

Telling jokes isn't her only strong suite as she loves to dabble with painting and has even painted at art shows. Painting from a young age led her to discover her creativity and eventually began to explore other trades, such as fictional writing, woodworking, and fondant sculpting. Brittany loves to try different things and is constantly looking for a new project. Most recently shes taken on her biggest project yet, she bought a new home with her fiancé. Renovations although hard work are also very exciting and satisfying and the young couple are enjoying the new challenge!

Black History Month celebrates African-Americans' contributions to American history and development. The month-long affair was the brainchild of distinguished black historian Dr. Carter G. Woodson, who established "Negro History Week" in 1926. Woodson chose the second week of February because it marked the births of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, two influential figures in Black history. In 1976, President Ford issued the first Message of Observance of Black History Month. Ten years later, Congress designated February "National Black (Afro-American) History Month."



When we celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth, we recognize, honor and acknowledge the contributions and achievements of those who went before us.

 

Members of Miami Beach Police Department want to tell you what Black History Month means to them.

"For me, Black History Month should be an encouragement to all African Americans and other minorities. It shows us that although these great people of years gone by had to deal with segregation, discrimination and brutalization at times, we can accomplish anything we put our minds, time, effort and talents into. Our society has truly been blessed to receive many of the inventions which were created by African Americans."
