Common Ways You Can Help Make Your Community Safe
If you want to help stop crime, there's plenty you might do in the name of neighborhood safety. Use these few quick ways to keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Know your community: The more you know different community members, the easier it will be to protect one another. Many communities in Charleston have even formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a thief sets off an alarm system, it can make them think twice about creeping around that same community for a while. Your security cameras could also catch intruders going through your lawn when escaping from your neighbor's house.
Keep items away from the window in your car: Leaving your wallet, iPad, or smartphone in plain sight can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in expensive items or store them out of view in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up outside motion lighting: Light keeps a burglar off guard. By installing sensored floodlights over a deck or a rear doorway, you could prevent a break-in before it begins.
Alert neighbors to when you’re not home: Let a friend know when you’re going out of town, and give them a key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
