Safety Planning After Separating from a Batterer

  • Change or add locks to your doors and windows. Add a peephole and increase outdoor lighting.
  • Identify methods for keeping your location confidential.
  • Consider getting an unlisted telephone number and caller ID to screen calls.
  • Change your cell phone number.
  • Buy or borrow a cell phone. It does not have to be activated to make an emergency 9-1-1 call. Use it to call 9-1-1 if you are in danger.
