5 Ways To Help Make Your Community Safer
Even though crime will always occur, there's a lot you might do in the name of neighborhood safety. Check out these five effective tips for keeping your block secure and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you talk to people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in South Bend have even formed an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a robber triggers an alarm system, it may dissuade them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras may also catch vandals running through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items out of sight in your vehicle: Storing your purse, laptop, or mobile phone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have your valuables or leave them out of view in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang motion flood lights: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By hanging motion floodlights over the garage or a rear doorway, you could prevent an intrusion before it begins.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you leave to go out of town, and give them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to Facebook if at all possible.
