Five Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
While no place is without violations, there's a lot you can do regarding your street’s safety. Check out these 5 quick ways to keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Hagerstown have also started an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a thief trips an alarm system, it may make them think twice about casing around that same community for a while. Your outside cameras might also capture people cutting through your front yard when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your vehicle: Forgetting your billfold, iPad, or smartphone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in expensive items or leave them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Light keeps a thief off guard. By installing motion-activated floodlights over shadowed areas or a patio doorway, you could scare off a burglary before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and give them a key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
