Five Ways You Can Help Keep Your Street Safer
While no place is devoid of misdeeds, there's plenty you can do about neighborhood safety. Check out these few easy ways so you can keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Know your community: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Kalamazoo have also formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Invest in a monitored security system: If a burglar triggers an alarm system, it can make them think twice about casing around that same street for a while. Your security cameras could also spot vandals running through your lawn when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep valuables out of sight in your car: Leaving your wallet, iPad, or mobile phone in the car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to bring in expensive items or leave them out of sight under the seat or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Thieves fear light. By installing motion lighting over shadowed areas or a patio entryway, you might scare off a burglary before it starts.
Let people know when you’re out of town: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go on vacation, and leave them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
