5 Tips On How To Help Make Your Community Safe
Even though crime will always happen, there's plenty you can do in the name of neighborhood safety. Use these few quick guidelines so you can keep your block safe, secure, and inviting.
Know your community: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Columbus have also organized a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief trips a motion sensor, it should dissuade them from lurking around that same community for a while. Your security cameras may also spot vandals cutting through your front yard when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep valuables hidden in your car: Storing your billfold, keys, or phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, carry in any personal or expensive items or leave them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Put up outside motion lights: Light keeps an intruder away. By installing motion-activated lights over a deck or a patio entryway, you may fend off a burglary before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and leave them a spare key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
