Common Ways To Help Make Your Street Safe And Secure
Even though transgressions will always happen, there's plenty you can do about your street’s safety. Use these five effective guidelines so you can keep your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Know your community: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in Akron have even started an official neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a robber triggers a motion sensor, it can dissuade them from lurking around that same community for a while. Your security cameras may also spot vandals running through your lawn when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your vehicle: Forgetting your billfold, iPad, or mobile phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in expensive items or leave them out of view in a console compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lights: Thieves fear light. By hanging motion-activated lights over a deck or a rear door, you might prevent an intrusion before it begins.
Let people know when you’re out of town: Let a friend know when you’re away to visit relatives, and leave them a key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
