Five Ways You Can Help Make Your Neighborhood Safer
If you need to stop crime, there's a lot you might do in the name of neighborhood safety. Here are few easy guidelines so you can keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in St. Louis have also started an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a burglar sets off an alarm system, it should make them think twice about creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your security cameras might also catch vandals going through your front yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your vehicle: Forgetting your purse, laptop, or mobile phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. Always remember to double check you have expensive items or store them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Light is a thief’s worst nightmare. By hanging motion-activated lighting over shadowed areas or a rear doorway, you may prevent a burglary before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and give them a spare key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
