Five Ways You Can Help Keep Your Street Safer
Even though misdeeds will always occur, there's plenty you might do regarding your street’s safety. Check out these five easy guidelines to keep your block secure and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in Toledo have even organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a thief trips a motion sensor, it should dissuade them from casing around that same street for a while. Your outside cameras may also spot people running through your lawn when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your car: Leaving your wallet, keys, or mobile phone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, carry in your valuables or store them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lighting: Burglars fear light. By putting up motion-activated lighting over the garage or a patio entryway, you may scare off an intrusion before it begins.
Let people know when you’re out of town: Let a friend know when you leave to go out of town, and leave them a spare key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, leave your travel plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
