Common Tips On How To Help Keep Your Street Safe And Secure
Even though crime will always happen, there's plenty you can do in the name of community safety. Here are 5 easy tips to keep your community both inviting and secure.
Meet your community: The more you know your neighbors, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Charlotte have even started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a home security system: If a thief triggers an alarm system, it may dissuade them from creeping around that same community for a while. Your outside security cameras might also spot people cutting through your front yard when escaping from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables hidden in your car: Storing your billfold, laptop, or phone in the car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to double check you have any personal or expensive items or hide them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lighting: Light is a burglar’s worst fear. By putting up motion-activated floodlights over shadowed areas or a rear door, you might scare off a break-in before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and give them a front door key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
