Five Ways You Can Help Make Your Community Safer
While no city is devoid of misdeeds, there's a few easy things you might do about neighborhood safety. Check out these few easy guidelines for keeping your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Know your community: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many communities in Columbus have even started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a thief trips a high-decibel alarm, it should make them think twice about creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras might also capture intruders going through your front yard when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items hidden in your car: Storing your purse, keys, or phone in plain sight can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Always remember to bring in any personal or expensive items or leave them out of sight under the seat or trunk.
Install outside motion lights: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By installing motion floodlights over shadowed areas or a patio doorway, you may prevent an intrusion before it happens.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and give them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
