5 Ways You Can Help Make Your Street Safer
Even though transgressions will always happen, there's a lot you might do regarding your street’s safety. Here are few effective ways so you can keep your block safe, secure, and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you know different community members, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many communities in Baton Rouge have also organized an official neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a burglar triggers a high-decibel alarm, it can dissuade them from lurking around that same street for a while. Your outside security cameras could also catch intruders running through your front yard when escaping from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items hidden in your vehicle: Leaving your billfold, laptop, or phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have expensive items or store them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Install outside motion lighting: Light keeps an intruder at bay. By hanging motion-activated lighting over a deck or a back entryway, you might prevent a burglary before it begins.
Let people know when you’re not home: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
