5 Ways To Help Make Your Street Safe And Secure
While no neighborhood is devoid of crime, there's a few easy things you can do regarding community safety. Check out these 5 effective ways to keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know different community members, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in York have even formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a thief triggers a high-decibel alarm, it should stop them from casing around that same community for a while. Your outside security cameras may also capture vandals cutting through your front yard when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep valuables hidden in your car: Storing your wallet, keys, or mobile phone in the car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in expensive items or store them in a safe place like in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion lights: Light is a burglar’s worst fear. By putting up motion-activated lighting over the garage or a back door, you could scare off an intrusion before it happens.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re out of town, and leave them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
