Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Community Safe And Secure
Even though crime will always occur, there's plenty you can do regarding neighborhood safety. Check out these few easy tips to keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Meet your community: The more you talk to your neighbors, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Joliet have also started a formal neighborhood watch.
Get a security system: If a burglar trips a high-decibel alarm, it may dissuade them from lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also spot people cutting through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your vehicle: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or mobile phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have any personal or expensive items or hide them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lighting: Light keeps an intruder away. By hanging sensored lights over the garage or a rear door, you might prevent an intrusion before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re going out of town, and leave them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
