5 Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safer
While no city is devoid of crime, there's a lot you might do in the name of neighborhood safety. Use these few effective guidelines so you can keep your community both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Detroit have even formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a security system: If a robber sets off an alarm system, it may dissuade them from lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your security cameras could also catch intruders cutting through your front yard when running from your neighbor's house.
Keep items away from the window in your vehicle: Forgetting your wallet, iPad, or smartphone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to bring in any personal or expensive items or hide them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Install motion lights: Light is a burglar’s worst nightmare. By installing motion floodlights over the garage or a back doorway, you might scare off an intrusion before it begins.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you’re going out of town, and give them a spare key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
