5 Ways To Help Make Your Street Safe
Even though crime will always happen, there's a few easy things you should do about neighborhood safety. Check out these few easy guidelines to keep your community secure and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in Springfield have also organized a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a robber trips a motion sensor, it can dissuade them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your security cameras could also spot intruders running through your yard when running from your neighbor's house.
Keep items away from the window in your car: Leaving your wallet, keys, or smartphone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in any personal or expensive items or store them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang motion lighting: Light is a burglar’s worst fear. By installing motion floodlights over shadowed areas or a patio door, you might scare off a burglary before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
