Common Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
Even though crime will always happen, there's plenty you can do about your street’s safety. Here are few effective guidelines for keeping your block safe, secure, and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you talk to people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Erie have even organized a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a thief triggers an alarm system, it should stop them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your security cameras could also capture intruders cutting through your front yard when running from your neighbor's house.
Keep items out of sight in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, keys, or mobile phone in the car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in your valuables or hide them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Install outside motion flood lights: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By installing motion-activated lighting over shadowed areas or a patio door, you could fend off an intrusion before it starts.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you’re out of town, and leave them a 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.
