5 Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe And Secure
If you want to help reduce crime, there's a lot you might do in the name of community safety. Check out these 5 quick ways for keeping your block secure and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know your neighbors, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Bloomington have also organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a home security system: If a burglar sets off a motion sensor, it should dissuade them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras might also catch vandals running through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables hidden in your vehicle: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or phone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in expensive items or leave them out of view in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang motion flood lights: Light keeps an intruder away. By putting up sensored lighting over a deck or a rear entryway, you could prevent a break-in before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and give them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
