5 Tips On How To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safer
While no neighborhood is free from violations, there's plenty you can do in the name of community safety. Use these few easy tips for keeping your block both inviting and secure.
Know your community: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Kansas City have also organized a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief sets off a motion sensor, it can dissuade them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras might also capture people going through your yard when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your billfold, laptop, or phone in the car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have any personal or expensive items or store them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion flood lights: Burglars fear light. By hanging motion-activated lighting over the garage or a back door, you might prevent a burglary before it happens.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re out of town, and leave them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
