Common Tips On How To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safe And Secure
While no neighborhood is without misdeeds, there's a lot you should do in the name of your street’s safety. Here are five effective tips to keep your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Know your community: The more you talk to your neighbors, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Boston have even started a formal neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a burglar triggers a high-decibel alarm, it can stop them from casing around that same street for a while. Your security cameras may also catch intruders cutting through your front yard when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items hidden in your vehicle: Forgetting your purse, laptop, or smartphone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to bring in any personal or expensive items or hide them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lights: Burglars fear light. By installing motion-activated lighting over shadowed areas or a back doorway, you may prevent a burglary before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a friend know when you’re away to visit relatives, and give them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
