Common Tips On How To Help Keep Your Street Safe
While no city is devoid of violations, there's plenty you can do regarding community safety. Here are five quick tips for keeping your community secure and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in San Francisco have also started an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a security system: If a burglar sets off a high-decibel alarm, it should make them think twice about casing around that same community for a while. Your outside cameras may also spot vandals going through your front yard when fleeing from your neighbor's house.
Keep expensive items hidden in your vehicle: Storing your wallet, keys, or mobile phone in the car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. If you can, double check you have expensive items or store them in a safe place like in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install outside motion lighting: Light is an intruder’s worst fear. By hanging sensored lights over the garage or a back doorway, you might prevent an intrusion before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re not home: Let a friend know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and leave them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
