Common Ways You Can Help Make Your Street Safer
If you want to reduce transgressions, there's plenty you should do about community safety. Here are five quick guidelines to keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Know your community: The more you know different community members, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Fort Myers have also organized an official neighborhood watch.
Invest in a home security system: If a robber sets off an alarm system, it can stop them from casing around that same street for a while. Your security cameras might also spot vandals cutting through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items out of sight in your car: Storing your billfold, laptop, or smartphone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in expensive items or hide them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Install motion lights: Light is a thief’s worst nightmare. By installing motion lights over shadowed areas or a back doorway, you might fend off a break-in before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to public social media sites if at all possible.
