Five Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
While no place is devoid of violations, there's a few easy things you might do in the name of neighborhood safety. Use these 5 quick tips for keeping your block both inviting and secure.
Know your neighbors: The more you meet people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Olympia have also formed an official neighborhood watch.
Get a home security system: If a burglar triggers an alarm system, it should stop them from creeping around that same community for a while. Your security cameras might also catch people running through your front yard when fleeing from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your car: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in your valuables or leave them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang motion lighting: Light keeps a thief at bay. By hanging motion lighting over shadowed areas or a rear door, you may prevent an intrusion before it happens.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a friend know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and leave them a spare key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
