Five Ways To Help Keep Your Street Safer
While no place is devoid of crime, there's plenty you should do about neighborhood safety. Check out these few effective ways to keep your block secure and inviting.
Meet your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to protect one another. Many neighborhoods in Kennewick have also started a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Get a monitored security system: If a robber trips a high-decibel alarm, it may make them think twice about lurking around that same street for a while. Your outside cameras may also capture vandals going through your front yard when escaping from a thwarted break-in.
Keep valuables hidden in your car: Storing your billfold, iPad, or smartphone in your car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in your valuables or store them out of view under the seat or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Light keeps an intruder at bay. By installing motion floodlights over the garage or a patio door, you might scare off a burglary before it begins.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re away to visit relatives, and give them a key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
