Common Ways To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safe
While no city is without crime, there's a lot you can do in the name of your street’s safety. Here are five quick guidelines to keep your community secure and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you talk to your neighbors, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Evansville have also formed an official neighborhood watch.
Install a home security system: If a burglar triggers a high-decibel alarm, it should dissuade them from casing around that same street for a while. Your security cameras could also catch people cutting through your front yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your wallet, iPad, or smartphone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in your valuables or store them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install motion lights: Wannabe intruders hate light. By putting up motion-activated floodlights over the garage or a patio entryway, you could prevent a burglary before it happens.
Let people know when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re away to visit relatives, and give them a key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to Facebook if at all possible.
