Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe And Secure
If you want to reduce crime, there's a lot you can do regarding neighborhood safety. Here are 5 quick tips to keep your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you meet different community members, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Albuquerque have also started an official neighborhood watch.
Get a security system: If a robber sets off a high-decibel alarm, it can make them think twice about creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras might also catch people running through your yard when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your car: Leaving your wallet, iPad, or mobile phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have expensive items or store them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion flood lights: Light is a burglar’s worst fear. By hanging motion lighting over shadowed areas or a rear door, you might prevent a break-in before it begins.
Tell trusted people when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and leave them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
