Five Ways To Help Make Your Street Safe
If you want to hinder crime, there's plenty you can do about community safety. Here are 5 easy ways to keep your block both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Topeka have even started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a robber sets off a motion sensor, it may make them think twice about creeping around that same community for a while. Your outside security cameras might also capture people cutting through your front yard when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep items away from the window in your vehicle: Forgetting your wallet, keys, or phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in expensive items or hide them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Hang motion flood lights: Light is a burglar’s worst fear. By installing motion-activated lights over a deck or a patio doorway, you might fend off a burglary before it begins.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re away to visit relatives, and leave them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to Facebook if at all possible.
