Five Tips On How To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safer
If you need to stop crime, there's a few easy things you might do in the name of community safety. Use these 5 easy ways so you can keep your community secure and inviting.
Meet your community: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Trenton have even organized a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a home security system: If a thief sets off a high-decibel alarm, it may make them think twice about lurking around that same community for a while. Your security cameras may also spot people going through your yard when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items hidden in your car: Storing your purse, laptop, or mobile phone in plain sight can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Always remember to double check you have expensive items or store them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion lights: Burglars fear light. By installing motion lights over shadowed areas or a patio door, you may fend off a break-in before it happens.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re away to visit relatives, and give them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
