Common Ways To Help Keep Your Community Safer
While no neighborhood is free from violations, there's plenty you might do regarding your street’s safety. Use these few effective ways so you can keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Know your community: The more you meet different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Grand Rapids have even organized an official neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a robber sets off an alarm system, it can dissuade them from lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your security cameras could also spot vandals cutting through your yard when fleeing from your neighbor's house.
Keep items out of sight in your vehicle: Forgetting your wallet, iPad, or phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in your valuables or store them out of sight in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang motion lighting: Light is a thief’s worst nightmare. By installing sensored floodlights over shadowed areas or a back doorway, you might scare off a burglary before it happens.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
