LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Lafayette Police Department's Community Outreach discussion for the month of March is over mental preparedness and personal safety.

The discussion will focus on ways to be alert and safe when you're in public places such as elevators, parking lots or if your car is stalled on the side of the road.

February's discussion on drugs in the community had a crowd of about 75 people.

Specialist Shana Wainscott hopes to see those numbers grow and that this month's message helps people stay safe when they are out.

"So many of us are so focused on technology and looking at our phones all the time that we're not paying attention to what's going on around us. So we're going to kind of focus on that a little bit and then we're going to get into personal safety things," said Wainscott.

The topic of personal safety in public is one Wainscott said they get a lot of questions about from the public.

"I've gone to a lot of church groups and provided this information and they seem to really like it and it kind of opens their mind up of what they should be paying attention to and focus on," said Wainscott.

The event will be March 27 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Lafayette City Council Chambers in the city building.
