Five Ways To Help Keep Your Street Safe And Secure
If you want to stop crime, there's a lot you might do about neighborhood safety. Here are few quick tips for keeping your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Meet your community: The more you know your neighbors, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Ithaca have even started a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a thief trips an alarm system, it may make them think twice about lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras might also spot intruders running through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables hidden in your car: Leaving your wallet, laptop, or phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in expensive items or leave them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang motion lights: Burglars fear light. By putting up motion lighting over the garage or a rear door, you may scare off an intrusion before it starts.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re out of town, and leave them a spare key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
