Five Ways To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
Even though crime will always occur, there's plenty you should do about neighborhood safety. Use these few effective ways so you can keep your block secure and inviting.
Know your community: The more you meet different community members, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Lubbock have even started a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a thief trips a motion sensor, it can dissuade them from lurking around that same community for a while. Your security cameras may also capture vandals running through your front yard when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep items away from the window in your car: Storing your billfold, keys, or smartphone in plain sight can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in your valuables or hide them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang outside motion lighting: Light is a burglar’s worst nightmare. By hanging motion-activated lighting over the garage or a back doorway, you may scare off a burglary before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go out of town, and leave them a spare key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
