Common Tips On How To Help Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
Even though transgressions will always happen, there's a few easy things you can do about neighborhood safety. Here are few easy tips to keep your community safe, secure, and inviting.
Look out for your neighbors: The more you know your neighbors, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Yakima have also formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a home security system: If a robber trips an alarm system, it should make them think twice about lurking around that same community for a while. Your outside security cameras may also capture vandals cutting through your lawn when running from the scene of a crime.
Keep valuables away from the window in your vehicle: Leaving your purse, iPad, or mobile phone in the car can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Always remember to carry in any personal or expensive items or store them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Install motion lighting: Wannabe intruders fear light. By putting up motion-activated lights over a deck or a back door, you might prevent an intrusion before it starts.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you leave to go on vacation, and give them a spare key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, don’t post vacation plans to social media if at all possible.
