EDC for dangerous area.

I work in a famously dangerous, gang infected area and I have to get from my car to peoples' homes and back again. Often I'm on a low lit street at night, and it could be just a walk from the curb or let's say up to 60 yards if I have to search for parking. Usually residential streets, but sometimes on skid row.

Assuming you were committed to doing this job for a couple of years and could not carry a firearm:

1) What light source would you carry and why?

2) How would you carry it?


3) What would you carry for defense that is legal for civilians in California? I would probably carry this on my right hip, but I'm open to suggestions.
