Where does one start?
There's a lot going on in this little video...
-- The publication date is given as 1994, which is in keeping with the styles of clothing in the video.
--The presence of the KMOL-TV studio in several shots pinpoints the location of outdoor filming as downtown San Antonio, TX, specifically here: https://goo.gl/maps/pK2Q7Jm7eam. (WOAI was required to change call letters to KMOL due to different ownership from 1974 - 2002.)
-- The first minute is title cards quoting statistics. I could have done without that. Fortunately it only lasts for a minute. This is followed by some issues with picture stabilization that clear up quickly.
-- There were some tricky filming challenges in this video: dark city streets, at night under sodium vapor lamps, etc. This is most likely why some sections of the video appear to be in black and white. Given that this was captured from VHS, I'd say that the video is in relatively good shape.
-- As for the security advice, for the most part I would say that the advice is still relevant today. Be aware of your surroundings/situational awareness is probably the best piece of overall advice.
-- I really miss the high-waisted mom jeans.
