Common Tips On How To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safe And Secure
Even though crime will always occur, there's plenty you should do regarding your street’s safety. Check out these 5 quick tips for keeping your block both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you talk to people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Lawrence have even started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a thief sets off a high-decibel alarm, it may dissuade them from casing around that same street for a while. Your security cameras may also catch intruders going through your lawn when running from your neighbor's house.
Keep items hidden in your vehicle: Storing your purse, keys, or mobile phone in plain sight can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in any personal or expensive items or leave them out of sight in a console compartment or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By hanging motion-activated floodlights over shadowed areas or a rear entryway, you could scare off a break-in before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re away to visit relatives, and leave them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
