5 Tips On How To Help Keep Your Street Safe And Secure
If you want to hinder transgressions, there's a few easy things you should do about your street’s safety. Here are five easy tips to keep your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in Pittsburgh have also formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a burglar sets off a high-decibel alarm, it should stop them from lurking around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras could also capture intruders going through your yard when escaping from the scene of a crime.
Keep valuables away from the window in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, iPad, or mobile phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in expensive items or store them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Hang motion flood lights: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By hanging sensored lighting over a deck or a patio entryway, you could scare off a break-in before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and give them a spare key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
