5 Tips On How To Help Keep Your Community Safe
While no place is free from crime, there's plenty you can do in the name of community safety. Here are 5 effective guidelines for keeping your block both inviting and secure.
Know your community: The more you meet different community members, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Ann Arbor have also organized an official neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief sets off an alarm system, it should make them think twice about casing around that same community for a while. Your outside security cameras may also spot people cutting through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items hidden in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, iPad, or smartphone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in your valuables or store them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lights: Thieves fear light. By putting up sensored floodlights over a deck or a back entryway, you may scare off an intrusion before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and give them a spare key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
