5 Ways To Help Keep Your Community Safer
While no neighborhood is devoid of crime, there's plenty you might do about community safety. Use these five quick ways for keeping your block both inviting and secure.
Meet your neighbors: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Tampa have even organized an official neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a burglar sets off a motion sensor, it may dissuade them from lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras might also capture people cutting through your lawn when escaping from the scene of a crime.
Keep valuables hidden in your vehicle: Storing your purse, laptop, or smartphone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in any personal or expensive items or leave them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion flood lights: Light keeps a burglar at bay. By installing motion lighting over shadowed areas or a back entryway, you might scare off an intrusion before it begins.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and leave them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to Facebook if at all possible.
