5 Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
Even though transgressions will always happen, there's plenty you should do in the name of neighborhood safety. Check out these 5 easy tips for keeping your community both inviting and secure.
Know your neighbors: The more you meet different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Gaithersburg have even formed an official neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief trips an alarm system, it may stop them from creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras might also capture vandals going through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items hidden in your car: Storing your purse, keys, or phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Always remember to bring in your valuables or hide them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Put up motion lights: Burglars fear light. By putting up motion-activated lighting over shadowed areas or a back doorway, you might fend off an intrusion before it happens.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you leave to go away to visit relatives, and leave them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
