Five Ways You Can Help Keep Your Community Safe
While no neighborhood is free from crime, there's a lot you should do in the name of your street’s safety. Check out these five quick tips for keeping your block secure and inviting.
Know your community: The more you talk to people in your neighborhood, the simpler it will be to look out for one another. Many neighborhoods in Tuscaloosa have also formed a formal neighborhood watch.
Install a security system: If a thief sets off an alarm system, it should dissuade them from lurking around that same community for a while. Your outside cameras may also catch intruders going through your yard when running from your neighbor's house.
Keep valuables out of sight in your car: Storing your wallet, keys, or smartphone in plain sight can invite a vehicular break-in. Always remember to double check you have any personal or expensive items or hide them in a safe place like in a console compartment or trunk.
Hang motion lighting: Light keeps a burglar at bay. By putting up motion lighting over shadowed areas or a back doorway, you might fend off a break-in before it starts.
Let people know when you’re gone: Let a neighbor know when you’re out of town, and leave them a front door key or door lock code to check-in periodically. Although, leave your travel plans off social media if at all possible.
