Five Tips On How To Help Keep Your Community Safe
Even though crime will always happen, there's a few easy things you can do regarding neighborhood safety. Here are 5 easy guidelines for keeping your block secure and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you talk to your neighbors, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in Bend have even organized a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a thief triggers a motion sensor, it can make them think twice about creeping around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras could also catch vandals going through your lawn when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your car: Storing your purse, keys, or mobile phone in the car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in any personal or expensive items or hide them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.
Hang outside motion lighting: Light keeps a thief at bay. By hanging motion-activated lights over a deck or a patio doorway, you could scare off a burglary before it starts.
Alert neighbors to when you’re out of town: Let a friend know when you’re on vacation, and give them a spare key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, don’t post vacation plans to Facebook if at all possible.
