Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safer
If you want to hinder transgressions, there's a few easy things you can do regarding community safety. Check out these five easy guidelines for keeping your community secure and inviting.
Meet your community: The more you know your neighbors, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many blocks in Columbia have even started a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a robber sets off a motion sensor, it can dissuade them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras could also spot intruders cutting through your front yard when fleeing from your neighbor's house.
Keep valuables away from the window in your car: Leaving your wallet, iPad, or smartphone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in expensive items or leave them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion flood lights: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By hanging motion-activated floodlights over the garage or a back doorway, you might scare off a break-in before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you’re away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
