Five Ways You Can Help Make Your Street Safer
If you want to help hinder transgressions, there's plenty you can do regarding community safety. Check out these five easy guidelines so you can keep your block both inviting and secure.
Know your community: The more you know different community members, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many blocks in Columbia have even started a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a robber trips a motion sensor, it can make them think twice about creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras could also spot people going through your lawn when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep items away from the window in your car: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or smartphone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in your valuables or leave them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Install outside motion flood lights: Light is a thief’s worst nightmare. By installing motion-activated lighting over shadowed areas or a patio door, you may fend off a break-in before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and give them a key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
