Common Ways To Help Keep Your Street Safer
While no city is without violations, there's plenty you can do about community safety. Here are few effective tips for keeping your community secure and inviting.
Look out for your community: The more you talk to your neighbors, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Dallas have also formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a thief sets off a high-decibel alarm, it can make them think twice about lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras might also catch people going through your front yard when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep items away from the window in your car: Leaving your purse, iPad, or mobile phone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have expensive items or store them out of view in a console compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion lighting: Light keeps an intruder off guard. By installing motion-activated lights over shadowed areas or a patio entryway, you might prevent a break-in before it happens.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
