themselves from crime by being street-smart, alert, and aware

Worldwide Caution issued by the Department of State. As the
Department of State continues to develop information on any
potential security threats to Americans overseas, it shares
credible threat information through its Consular Information
Program documents, available on the Internet at

hear recorded information by calling the Department of State
in Washington, D.C. at (202) 647-5225 from a touch-tone
