Five Ways You Can Help Keep Your Community Safe
Even though misdeeds will always happen, there's a few easy things you should do in the name of your street’s safety. Use these 5 easy tips to keep your block both inviting and secure.
Meet your community: The more you meet your neighbors, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in West Lafayette have also formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a burglar trips a motion sensor, it should stop them from lurking around that same street for a while. Your outside cameras could also spot vandals running through your front yard when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items hidden in your car: Leaving your wallet, iPad, or smartphone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. Always remember to double check you have your valuables or leave them out of sight in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion lighting: Burglars fear light. By hanging sensored lights over a deck or a rear doorway, you might scare off a break-in before it happens.
Let people know when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and leave them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
