5 Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safer
Even though misdeeds will always happen, there's plenty you might do about community safety. Use these few effective guidelines so you can keep your block safe, secure, and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many blocks in Minneapolis have also formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a home security system: If a burglar trips a motion sensor, it may dissuade them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your security cameras could also spot intruders running through your lawn when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your car: Storing your wallet, keys, or smartphone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. If you can, bring in your valuables or store them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Put up outside motion lighting: Light is a burglar’s worst fear. By putting up motion-activated lighting over the garage or a back door, you could scare off a break-in before it begins.
Tell trusted people when you’re not home: Let a friend 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 Facebook if at all possible.
