5 Ways To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
While no neighborhood is devoid of misdeeds, there's plenty you can do regarding your street’s safety. Check out these five effective tips for keeping your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know your neighbors, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Abilene have also started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a burglar trips an alarm system, it may dissuade them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your security cameras may also catch people running through your front yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables out of sight in your car: Leaving your wallet, keys, or smartphone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have expensive items or hide them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Light keeps a burglar at bay. By hanging motion lighting over the garage or a back doorway, you might scare off a break-in before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a friend know when you’re away to visit relatives, and leave them a front door key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
