Five Ways You Can Help Make Your Neighborhood Safe And Secure
While no place is free from crime, there's a few easy things you can do regarding your street’s safety. Here are few effective ways to keep your block secure and inviting.
Know your community: The more you meet your neighbors, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Scranton have also formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a burglar sets off a motion sensor, it may make them think twice about lurking around that same street for a while. Your security cameras may also catch vandals cutting through your front yard when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items hidden in your car: Leaving your wallet, laptop, or mobile phone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in any personal or expensive items or leave them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Hang motion flood lights: Light keeps a thief at bay. By putting up motion-activated lighting over shadowed areas or a back entryway, you could prevent an intrusion before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re not home: Let a trusted neighbor know when you leave to go on vacation, and leave them a spare key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to Facebook if at all possible.
