Five Ways You Can Help Make Your Street Safer
While no neighborhood is devoid of misdeeds, there's a lot you can do in the name of neighborhood safety. Here are 5 quick tips so you can keep your neighborhood safe, secure, and inviting.
Look out for your community: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Long Beach have also organized an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a robber triggers a high-decibel alarm, it may make them think twice about casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras might also spot people running through your front yard when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep items away from the window in your car: Leaving your wallet, keys, or phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in your valuables or store them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion lights: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By hanging motion-activated lighting over shadowed areas or a patio doorway, you might prevent a break-in before it starts.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and give them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
