Common Ways You Can Help Make Your Neighborhood Safe And Secure
If you want to reduce crime, there's a lot you might do regarding your street’s safety. Check out these five effective ways so you can keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Know your neighbors: The more you know your neighbors, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Newark have even organized a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a robber trips a motion sensor, it can stop them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside cameras might also catch people running through your yard when escaping from the scene of a crime.
Keep valuables away from the window in your vehicle: Storing your wallet, iPad, or mobile phone in the car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in expensive items or leave them in a safe place like in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang motion flood lights: Thieves hate light. By putting up motion-activated lights over the garage or a patio doorway, you may prevent a break-in before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and leave them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
