5 Ways You Can Help Keep Your Street Safer
Even though crime will always occur, there's a lot you can do about community safety. Use these five effective tips to keep your community both inviting and secure.
Look out for your community: The more you talk to your neighbors, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Houston have also formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a thief trips an alarm system, it should stop them from casing around that same street for a while. Your outside cameras might also capture vandals going through your lawn when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items away from the window in your vehicle: Storing your wallet, iPad, or phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. If you can, carry in any personal or expensive items or leave them out of sight in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang motion lighting: Light keeps a thief at bay. By putting up sensored floodlights over shadowed areas or a rear door, you could scare off a break-in before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and leave them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
