5 Tips On How To Help Keep Your Community Safer

If you want to help stop crime, there's a lot you can do regarding neighborhood safety. Use these few effective ways for keeping your community both inviting and secure.

Know your neighbors: The more you know people in your neighborhood, the easier it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in Des Moines have even formed a coordinated neighborhood watch.

Install a monitored security system: If a robber triggers a motion sensor, it should stop them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras may also catch people going through your front yard when running from a thwarted break-in.

Keep expensive items away from the window in your vehicle: Leaving your wallet, iPad, or mobile phone in plain sight can be a reason for a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to bring in your valuables or hide them in a safe place like under the seat or trunk.

Install motion flood lights: Light is a burglar’s worst nightmare. By putting up motion-activated floodlights over shadowed areas or a patio doorway, you could fend off an intrusion before it starts.

Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a trusted neighbor know when you’re on vacation, and give them a front door key or door lock code in case of emergency. Although, leave your travel plans off Facebook if at all possible.
