Five Ways To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
Even though crime will always occur, there's plenty you should do in the name of neighborhood safety. Here are 5 quick tips for keeping your block both inviting and secure.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you know your neighbors, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Sandy Springs have also formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a home security system: If a thief trips an alarm system, it should dissuade them from lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras may also catch intruders going through your lawn when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items away from the window in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, laptop, or smartphone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to bring in any personal or expensive items or leave them out of sight in a console compartment or trunk.
Put up motion lights: Wannabe intruders hate light. By installing motion-activated lights over the garage or a patio entryway, you might scare off a burglary before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and leave them a key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
