Common Tips On How To Help Make Your Street Safe And Secure
Even though crime will always happen, there's plenty you should do regarding community safety. Here are 5 effective ways so you can keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you talk to your neighbors, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Appleton have also started an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a burglar trips an alarm system, it should dissuade them from creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also catch intruders going through your lawn when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your billfold, keys, or phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have any personal or expensive items or leave them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion lighting: Light keeps a thief at bay. By installing motion-activated lighting over the garage or a rear doorway, you might prevent a burglary before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going out of town, and leave them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
