Five Ways To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe And Secure
If you want to help hinder crime, there's a few easy things you might do about neighborhood safety. Here are 5 effective ways so you can keep your block secure and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you meet different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Montgomery have even organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a home security system: If a robber sets off an alarm system, it may make them think twice about creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also capture intruders cutting through your yard when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your car: Leaving your purse, iPad, or phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in expensive items or hide them in a safe place like in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion lights: Light keeps an intruder away. By putting up motion lights over the garage or a rear entryway, you could scare off a burglary before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and leave them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
