Common Ways To Help Keep Your Street Safer
While no place is free from crime, there's a few easy things you should do regarding neighborhood safety. Here are 5 effective tips for keeping your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Asheville have also organized an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a robber sets off a motion sensor, it can dissuade them from lurking around that same community for a while. Your outside cameras could also catch vandals running through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items hidden in your car: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or smartphone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have any personal or expensive items or leave them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up motion lights: Light is a burglar’s worst fear. By installing sensored lighting over shadowed areas or a rear doorway, you may prevent a break-in before it begins.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a friend know when you’re going on vacation, and leave them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
