Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
Even though misdeeds will always happen, there's a lot you might do in the name of your street’s safety. Use these few easy guidelines so you can keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Charleston have also formed an official neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief trips a motion sensor, it can make them think twice about creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras may also catch people running through your yard when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your car: Leaving your wallet, keys, or mobile phone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in your valuables or leave them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion flood lights: Light keeps an intruder at bay. By putting up motion-activated floodlights over the garage or a patio entryway, you could scare off an intrusion before it begins.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and leave them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
