Common Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
If you want to reduce crime, there's plenty you should do about community safety. Check out these 5 effective tips so you can keep your community both inviting and secure.
Look out for your community: The more you know different community members, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Evanston have even started a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a home security system: If a burglar sets off an alarm system, it can stop them from lurking around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside security cameras might also spot vandals going through your yard when escaping from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items hidden in your vehicle: Storing your purse, keys, or phone in plain sight can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in expensive items or hide them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Hang motion lighting: Light keeps a thief off guard. By hanging motion lights over the garage or a patio entryway, you could scare off an intrusion before it happens.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a neighbor know when you leave to go out of town, and leave them a spare 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.
