Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Street Safe
While no neighborhood is free from misdeeds, there's a few easy things you should do about community safety. Check out these five quick ways to keep your neighborhood safe, secure, and inviting.
Look out for your community: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in Shreveport have even organized an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a robber triggers a motion sensor, it should dissuade them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras might also spot intruders going through your lawn when escaping from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables out of sight in your vehicle: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or mobile phone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, carry in any personal or expensive items or leave them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Install outside motion lights: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By installing motion-activated floodlights over shadowed areas or a patio doorway, you might prevent an intrusion before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a friend know when you’re going out of town, and give them a spare key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
