Neighborhood Safety Tips:
– Keep an eye out! If you see something suspicious, report it!
– Ask the police to increase patrols of your neighborhood.
– Sponsor a Neighborhood Watch.
– Be sure the outside doors of your home have strong deadbolt locks.
– Keep spare keys with a trusted neighbor or nearby shopkeeper, not under a doormat or planter, on a ledge, or in the mailbox.
– Make sure nothing in your car appeals to thieves. Even small tote bags and loose change can encourage break-ins.
– Illuminate or eliminate places an intruder might hide: the spaces between trees or shrubbery, stairwells, alleys, hallways, and entryways.
– Set timers on lights when you’re away from home so it appears to be occupied.
– Organize neighborhood cleanup days to send the message that your community is closed to thieves, vandals, and loiterers.
– Installing cameras in the neighborhood can prevent various crime activity from occurring. Please refer to this link on how to purchase a security camera if interested.
