Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Street Safe
If you want to stop crime, there's plenty you can do regarding your street’s safety. Use these five effective ways so you can keep your block secure and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many communities in Utica have even started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a home security system: If a thief sets off a high-decibel alarm, it should dissuade them from lurking around that same street for a while. Your security cameras might also spot intruders cutting through your lawn when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your vehicle: Leaving your billfold, keys, or phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to bring in expensive items or store them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Put up motion lighting: Light is a thief’s worst fear. By putting up motion-activated floodlights over shadowed areas or a back entryway, you could scare off a burglary before it starts.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re out of town, and give them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
