Five Tips On How To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safer
While no place is without violations, there's a few easy things you can do in the name of neighborhood safety. Here are 5 effective guidelines for keeping your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you know your neighbors, the simpler it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in New Orleans have also formed an official neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief sets off an alarm system, it should stop them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside cameras might also catch vandals cutting through your front yard when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items hidden in your vehicle: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or mobile phone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in any personal or expensive items or store them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lights: Light keeps a thief at bay. By hanging motion lighting over shadowed areas or a patio doorway, you might scare off an intrusion before it begins.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you leave to go on vacation, and leave 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.
