Common Tips On How To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safe
While no neighborhood is without violations, there's a few easy things you might do regarding your street’s safety. Here are few easy ways to keep your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you know different community members, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Champaign have also organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a thief trips an alarm system, it should make them think twice about casing around that same street for a while. Your security cameras could also catch people running through your lawn when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables away from the window in your car: Leaving your billfold, keys, or mobile phone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in your valuables or leave them out of sight in a console compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion flood lights: Light is a thief’s worst fear. By putting up motion-activated lights over a deck or a back door, you may prevent a break-in before it happens.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going on vacation, and leave them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
