Common Ways To Help Make Your Community Safer
If you need to reduce crime, there's plenty you might do in the name of neighborhood safety. Use these 5 quick guidelines to keep your community both inviting and secure.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know your neighbors, the simpler it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Greenville have even started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a security system: If a burglar trips an alarm system, it may dissuade them from lurking around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras may also capture people going through your yard when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep items away from the window in your vehicle: Forgetting your purse, keys, or phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have expensive items or leave them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion flood lights: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By installing motion-activated floodlights over a deck or a back doorway, you may prevent a burglary before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and give them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
