Common Ways You Can Help Make Your Neighborhood Safe
Even though misdeeds will always happen, there's a few easy things you might do about your street’s safety. Check out these five quick guidelines so you can keep your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Know your community: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Springfield have also formed an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a thief triggers an alarm system, it can dissuade them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras might also capture people cutting through your lawn when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep items out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your billfold, laptop, or smartphone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in expensive items or hide them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Install motion lights: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By installing sensored floodlights over the garage or a back doorway, you might fend off an intrusion before it begins.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go on vacation, and leave them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
