Five Ways You Can Help Keep Your Street Safe
Even though misdeeds will always happen, there's a lot you should do about community safety. Check out these few easy tips so you can keep your community both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Brooklyn have also organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a home security system: If a burglar triggers a high-decibel alarm, it can make them think twice about casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras may also capture people running through your lawn when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your vehicle: Storing your billfold, laptop, or mobile phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, carry in your valuables or hide them in a safe place like in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lights: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By hanging sensored floodlights over a deck or a rear door, you might prevent an intrusion before it happens.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and give them a front door key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
