5 Ways To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safer
Even though crime will always occur, there's a few easy things you should do about neighborhood safety. Use these few easy guidelines so you can keep your neighborhood safe, secure, and inviting.
Meet your community: The more you know different community members, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Oakland have even started a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a robber trips an alarm system, it can make them think twice about lurking around that same street for a while. Your security cameras might also capture people going through your yard when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your vehicle: Leaving your billfold, iPad, or smartphone in the car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in your valuables or hide them out of view in a console compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion lighting: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By hanging motion-activated lighting over the garage or a patio doorway, you may fend off a break-in before it happens.
Let people know when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and leave them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
