Common Ways To Help Make Your Neighborhood Safer
If you want to help hinder crime, there's a few easy things you might do about your street’s safety. Check out these 5 quick ways for keeping your block both inviting and secure.
Know your community: The more you know different community members, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many communities in Wichita Falls have also formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a burglar triggers a motion sensor, it may stop them from creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your security cameras could also spot people cutting through your yard when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items hidden in your car: Forgetting your billfold, laptop, or mobile phone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have your valuables or hide them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Install motion lights: Light is a thief’s worst fear. By putting up motion-activated lights over shadowed areas or a back doorway, you may scare off a break-in before it happens.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and leave them a spare key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
