Five Ways To Help Make Your Street Safe
While no neighborhood is free from crime, there's a few easy things you should do regarding community safety. Use these five effective ways for keeping your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you talk to different community members, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Manhattan have even organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Get a home security system: If a thief triggers a high-decibel alarm, it should make them think twice about casing around that same community for a while. Your security cameras may also capture vandals going through your lawn when fleeing from your neighbor's house.
Keep valuables hidden in your car: Forgetting your wallet, keys, or mobile phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in expensive items or hide them out of view in a console compartment or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Thieves fear light. By putting up motion lighting over shadowed areas or a back doorway, you may fend off a burglary before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and give them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
