Common Ways To Help Make Your Community Safer
While no place is devoid of crime, there's a lot you might do in the name of community safety. Here are five quick guidelines for keeping your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Meet your community: The more you talk to your neighbors, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many blocks in Lafayette have even formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a home security system: If a burglar sets off a high-decibel alarm, it can make them think twice about casing around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras could also catch vandals cutting through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep items hidden in your vehicle: Storing your wallet, iPad, or smartphone in the car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have your valuables or leave them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install motion lights: Burglars hate light. By putting up sensored lighting over shadowed areas or a back doorway, you might fend off a break-in before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and give them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
