Common Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
While no neighborhood is free from violations, there's plenty you might do regarding neighborhood safety. Here are five easy tips to keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Look out for your community: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Memphis have even formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a burglar sets off a motion sensor, it may make them think twice about creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras may also capture vandals cutting through your front yard when escaping from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables away from the window in your car: Forgetting your purse, iPad, or phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in expensive items or hide them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Hang outside motion lights: Burglars fear light. By installing sensored lights over the garage or a patio doorway, you might fend off a break-in before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you leave to go on vacation, and give them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
