Five Tips On How To Help Make Your Community Safe
If you want to help hinder transgressions, there's a lot you might do in the name of your street’s safety. Use these five effective ways to keep your block secure and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you meet your neighbors, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many communities in McAllen have even organized an official neighborhood watch.
Get a security system: If a robber sets off a high-decibel alarm, it may stop them from lurking around that same community for a while. Your outside security cameras could also spot intruders cutting through your front yard when fleeing from your neighbor's house.
Keep valuables hidden in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, keys, or phone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. If you can, carry in expensive items or leave them in a safe place like in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang motion lights: Light keeps a burglar away. By putting up motion-activated lighting over a deck or a back entryway, you may prevent a break-in before it happens.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re going out of town, and give 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.
