5 Tips On How To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
While no neighborhood is free from violations, there's plenty you should do regarding neighborhood safety. Here are five easy ways to keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Meet your community: The more you meet different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Augusta have even formed an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a thief trips a high-decibel alarm, it may make them think twice about creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also capture people running through your front yard when escaping from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your vehicle: Storing your billfold, iPad, or smartphone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have any personal or expensive items or hide them out of sight under the seat or trunk.
Hang outside motion lighting: Light keeps an intruder at bay. By hanging motion-activated lights over shadowed areas or a back door, you could prevent a burglary before it begins.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you’re going out of town, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
