No. While there certainly are places that are "dangerous", even most people who live in those areas die from heart disease and other age related diseases.
As to situational awareness, I have never been in a situation that I thought might turn violent. I try to be aware and notice if someone is being suspicious but beyond thinking "Hm, that guy is acting odd." I've never felt in danger.
