5 Ways You Can Help Keep Your Street Safe And Secure
If you want to help hinder crime, there's plenty you might do in the name of community safety. Check out these five quick guidelines so you can keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know your neighbors, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Hoover have even formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a burglar triggers a motion sensor, it should dissuade them from creeping around that same community for a while. Your security cameras could also spot intruders going through your front yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables hidden in your vehicle: Storing your billfold, laptop, or mobile phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to double check you have expensive items or leave them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion lights: Wannabe intruders fear light. By hanging sensored lights over the garage or a patio doorway, you may scare off a break-in before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go on vacation, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
