Home security worries don’t stop at the front entrance. When our neighbors become victims of crime or report questionable activity, we worry about all of those around us too.
The good news is that many folks are proactive about tackling these worries. Teaming up with neighbors is one of America’s best home security measures, according to Alarm.com research. Half of all neighbors say they let one another know about sketchy activity and keep an eye on each other’s homes when traveling.
When you work together and communicate. It is easy to create a safe neighborhood. Here are some ways to start.
Get to Know Your Neighbors-
The first way to help keep your neighborhood safe is to connect with those around you. Reaching out and building trust between each other will make it easier to team up on safety and crime prevention.
If you cannot connect face to face, use the internet. Create a neighborhood FaceBook page if there isn’t one already set up. This is an easy way to connect with one another, share your concerns about unusual activity, local misdeeds, and keep everyone informed. Check to see if your local police department has its own FaceBook page and follow them as well.
