Five Ways You Can Help Make Your Community Safer
Even though transgressions will always occur, there's a lot you can do regarding community safety. Here are five quick tips so you can keep your block both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you meet your neighbors, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Gainesville have also started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a burglar sets off an alarm system, it should dissuade them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras might also catch vandals going through your lawn when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep items hidden in your car: Storing your purse, laptop, or phone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have expensive items or store them out of sight under the seat or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Light is a burglar’s worst nightmare. By hanging motion lighting over the garage or a patio entryway, you could fend off an intrusion before it happens.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you’re going out of town, and leave them a spare key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, keep your vacation plans off social media if at all possible.
