5 Ways To Help Make Your Community Safer
Even though crime will always happen, there's plenty you can do regarding neighborhood safety. Here are 5 easy tips for keeping your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Meet your community: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Albany have also organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a home security system: If a thief sets off an alarm system, it can stop them from creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also capture people cutting through your front yard when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables away from the window in your car: Storing your purse, keys, or phone in the car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in any personal or expensive items or hide them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion lights: Burglars fear light. By putting up motion lights over the garage or a back doorway, you may scare off a break-in before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go out of town, and leave them a front door key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
