Five Ways You Can Help Keep Your Community Safe
If you need to hinder crime, there's a few easy things you might do regarding your street’s safety. Check out these 5 easy guidelines so you can keep your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Look out for your community: The more you meet your neighbors, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Jacksonville have also organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a thief trips an alarm system, it may dissuade them from casing around that same street for a while. Your outside cameras might also catch people running through your front yard when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep items away from the window in your vehicle: Storing your wallet, keys, or smartphone in the car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in expensive items or leave them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up motion lighting: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By putting up motion-activated lights over shadowed areas or a rear door, you may fend off a break-in before it begins.
Let people know when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and give them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
