Five Tips On How To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safer
While no neighborhood is free from violations, there's a lot you can do in the name of your street’s safety. Check out these five easy guidelines so you can keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Madison have even formed an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a thief trips a high-decibel alarm, it can stop them from lurking around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras may also catch intruders running through your front yard when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items out of sight in your vehicle: Storing your wallet, iPad, or mobile phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to double check you have expensive items or hide them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion lights: Wannabe intruders fear light. By hanging motion-activated lights over the garage or a rear entryway, you could scare off a break-in before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you leave to go out of town, and leave them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
