Common Tips On How To Help Keep Your Community Safer
While no neighborhood is free from crime, there's a lot you should do about your street’s safety. Use these few easy ways so you can keep your block safe, secure, and inviting.
Meet your community: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in New York City have even organized an official neighborhood watch.
Get a home security system: If a robber triggers a motion sensor, it should stop them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras could also catch vandals running through your lawn when escaping from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables away from the window in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, keys, or smartphone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in any personal or expensive items or leave them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up motion lighting: Light is a thief’s worst nightmare. By installing motion-activated lights over a deck or a patio doorway, you may prevent an intrusion before it begins.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
