Common Tips On How To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
If you want to hinder crime, there's a lot you can do in the name of community safety. Use these few easy tips so you can keep your community secure and inviting.
Meet your community: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Blacksburg have even formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a burglar sets off a high-decibel alarm, it can stop them from creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also catch vandals cutting through your lawn when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your car: Storing your billfold, laptop, or phone in the car can invite a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have your valuables or hide them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By putting up sensored floodlights over a deck or a rear doorway, you may scare off a break-in before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
