Common Tips On How To Help Make Your Community Safer
While no neighborhood is free from violations, there's a few easy things you should do about your street’s safety. Here are few quick guidelines for keeping your community secure and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you meet your neighbors, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many communities in Decatur have even formed an official neighborhood watch.
Get a security system: If a robber sets off a motion sensor, it should stop them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras may also capture people running through your yard when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items hidden in your vehicle: Forgetting your wallet, laptop, or smartphone in the car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in your valuables or hide them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion flood lights: Light keeps a burglar off guard. By installing sensored floodlights over a deck or a patio door, you might fend off a burglary before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re going out of town, and give them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
