Common Ways To Help Make Your Community Safe
While no neighborhood is devoid of violations, there's plenty you should do in the name of community safety. Here are five easy ways for keeping your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you talk to people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Dayton have even started a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a home security system: If a burglar triggers an alarm system, it may make them think twice about lurking around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras could also spot vandals going through your lawn when running from your neighbor's house.
Keep expensive items hidden in your car: Leaving your purse, keys, or mobile phone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in any personal or expensive items or store them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up motion lighting: Light keeps a thief away. By hanging motion lights over shadowed areas or a back entryway, you could fend off a break-in before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a trusted neighbor know when you leave to go out of town, and give them a key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
