5 Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safer
If you want to help stop transgressions, there's a few easy things you can do about neighborhood safety. Here are five effective guidelines so you can keep your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you meet different community members, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Chicago have also started a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a home security system: If a robber triggers an alarm system, it may make them think twice about creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras might also catch vandals going through your lawn when escaping from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your wallet, iPad, or mobile phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have any personal or expensive items or hide them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Put up motion flood lights: Wannabe intruders fear light. By putting up motion-activated floodlights over the garage or a rear doorway, you could fend off an intrusion before it happens.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go out of town, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
