5 Ways You Can Help Make Your Neighborhood Safe And Secure
If you need to reduce crime, there's a lot you should do in the name of your street’s safety. Use these 5 effective tips so you can keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Know your neighbors: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to protect one another. Many communities in Port St. Lucie have even started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a burglar triggers a high-decibel alarm, it should dissuade them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your security cameras could also capture people going through your front yard when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep valuables out of sight in your vehicle: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or mobile phone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in expensive items or store them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Put up outside motion lighting: Burglars fear light. By installing sensored lighting over a deck or a patio doorway, you may scare off an intrusion before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to Facebook if at all possible.
