May seem obvious to some but a good reminder not to be complacent:

“I had my purse and phone stolen at Banneker pool two summers ago, and I know this is a pretty regular occurrence at this time of year. I now lock my stuff up in a locker with a padlock which helps me relax and enjoy my swim a lot more.

A few weeks ago as I was leaving Banneker pool, I overheard another swimmer reporting her bag was stolen and just this past weekend, someone sitting near me on the pool deck had their phone swiped.”
