Common Ways You Can Help Make Your Street Safer
While no place is without violations, there's plenty you might do about your street’s safety. Use these five effective guidelines so you can keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Meet your neighbors: The more you meet your neighbors, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many blocks in Santa Clarita have also formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief sets off an alarm system, it may make them think twice about lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also spot intruders cutting through your yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables hidden in your vehicle: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or mobile phone in your car can invite a vehicular break-in. Always remember to double check you have your valuables or store them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang motion flood lights: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By hanging motion-activated floodlights over shadowed areas or a patio doorway, you could fend off an intrusion before it starts.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re going on vacation, and leave them a key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
