Common Ways You Can Help Make Your Neighborhood Safer
While no neighborhood is without violations, there's a lot you should do about neighborhood safety. Check out these few effective guidelines to keep your community secure and inviting.
Know your neighbors: The more you talk to different community members, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many blocks in Salinas have even formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.
Install a home security system: If a robber triggers a high-decibel alarm, it may make them think twice about lurking around that same street for a while. Your security cameras may also catch vandals going through your lawn when fleeing from your neighbor's house.
Keep items out of sight in your car: Storing your purse, laptop, or smartphone in plain sight can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to carry in expensive items or hide them out of view in a console compartment or trunk.
Install motion flood lights: Light is an intruder’s worst nightmare. By putting up motion floodlights over the garage or a rear entryway, you might scare off an intrusion before it starts.
Tell trusted people when you’re gone: Let a friend know when you’re going away to visit relatives, and leave them a front door key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, keep your vacation plans off Facebook if at all possible.
