Common Ways You Can Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
Even though misdeeds will always happen, there's a lot you can do in the name of community safety. Check out these 5 effective ways for keeping your neighborhood secure and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you know different community members, the simpler it will be to depend on one another. Many communities in Portland have also organized an official neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a burglar trips an alarm system, it may stop them from creeping around that same street for a while. Your security cameras may also catch vandals cutting through your front yard when running from a thwarted break-in.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your car: Storing your purse, keys, or phone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in expensive items or leave them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Install outside motion flood lights: Light keeps an intruder off guard. By installing motion-activated floodlights over a deck or a patio doorway, you may scare off a burglary before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a friend know when you’re away to visit relatives, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
