Common Ways To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safer
Even though crime will always occur, there's plenty you might do regarding community safety. Check out these 5 easy tips for keeping your block both inviting and secure.
Know your community: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many communities in Jamestown have also organized a formal 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 neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also catch people going through your front yard when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your wallet, keys, or phone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have your valuables or hide them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Install outside motion flood lights: Light keeps an intruder off guard. By putting up motion-activated floodlights over shadowed areas or a back entryway, you could prevent a break-in before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go on vacation, and give them a key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
