5 Ways You Can Help Keep Your Street Safe
While no neighborhood is devoid of crime, there's a lot you can do in the name of neighborhood safety. Use these few easy ways so you can keep your community secure and inviting.
Know your community: The more you talk to people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Worcester have even organized a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief sets off a high-decibel alarm, it can stop them from lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras might also capture people going through your front yard when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, laptop, or phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, carry in expensive items or leave them out of view in a console compartment or trunk.
Install motion lights: Light keeps a thief at bay. By hanging motion floodlights over a deck or a patio doorway, you might fend off an intrusion before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and leave 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.
