5 Ways To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safer
If you want to help stop crime, there's a lot you might do regarding your street’s safety. Use these 5 effective ways to keep your community both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you talk to people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Peoria have even organized an official neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a robber trips a high-decibel alarm, it can dissuade them from lurking around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras might also capture vandals cutting through your lawn when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep items out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, iPad, or phone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in your valuables or hide them out of sight in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion flood lights: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By hanging sensored floodlights over a deck or a rear entryway, you might scare off a burglary before it starts.
Let people know when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
