5 Ways To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safer
If you want to help reduce crime, there's a few easy things you might do in the name of neighborhood safety. Use these few easy tips for keeping your community secure and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you meet different community members, the simpler it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Lynchburg have also organized an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a robber triggers an alarm system, it may dissuade them from creeping around that same community for a while. Your outside cameras may also capture intruders running through your yard when running from your neighbor's house.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your vehicle: Storing your purse, laptop, or smartphone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in your valuables or leave them in a safe place like in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up motion lighting: Light keeps an intruder away. By putting up sensored lights over the garage or a patio door, you could prevent an intrusion before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and leave them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
