Common Ways To Help Keep Your Street Safe And Secure
Even though crime will always happen, there's a few easy things you might do regarding neighborhood safety. Here are 5 effective ways so you can keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you meet different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Huntsville have also started an official neighborhood watch.
Get a security system: If a burglar sets off a high-decibel alarm, it can dissuade them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your security cameras might also catch people cutting through your front yard when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your vehicle: Leaving your billfold, keys, or smartphone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have your valuables or store them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install motion lights: Light keeps a burglar away. By putting up motion-activated floodlights over a deck or a patio door, you could fend off an intrusion before it happens.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and give them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
