Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Community Safer
While no place is devoid of crime, there's a few easy things you might do in the name of neighborhood safety. Use these five effective ways to keep your block secure and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Reno have also started a formal neighborhood watch.
Get a home security system: If a burglar sets off a motion sensor, it may stop them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras may also capture people going through your lawn when running from your neighbor's house.
Keep items away from the window in your car: Forgetting your purse, keys, or mobile phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. If you can, carry in any personal or expensive items or store them out of sight in a console compartment or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Thieves fear light. By installing sensored floodlights over shadowed areas or a rear entryway, you might prevent a break-in before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
