Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Street Safer
If you want to help hinder transgressions, there's plenty you might do in the name of community safety. Use these few quick guidelines so you can keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you meet your neighbors, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Rockford have even formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a home security system: If a thief trips an alarm system, it may make them think twice about creeping around that same community for a while. Your outside cameras might also catch people cutting through your lawn when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items hidden in your vehicle: Storing your purse, keys, or smartphone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have your valuables or hide them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion flood lights: Wannabe intruders hate light. By hanging motion floodlights over the garage or a patio door, you could scare off an intrusion before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go out of town, and give them a spare key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to Facebook if at all possible.
