Common Ways You Can Help Make Your Neighborhood Safer
While no city is free from crime, there's a lot you can do regarding community safety. Use these few effective ways so you can keep your neighborhood both inviting and secure.
Know your community: The more you meet your neighbors, the easier it will be to depend on one another. Many neighborhoods in Ocala have also organized an official neighborhood watch.
Install a monitored security system: If a thief triggers a high-decibel alarm, it can stop them from casing around that same neighborhood for a while. Your outside cameras may also catch vandals going through your yard when fleeing from the scene of a crime.
Keep expensive items away from the window in your car: Forgetting your billfold, keys, or mobile phone in your car can instigate a vehicular break-in. Try to remember to double check you have any personal or expensive items or store them in a safe place like in a glove compartment or trunk.
Put up motion flood lights: Light is a burglar’s worst nightmare. By putting up motion-activated lights over a deck or a back entryway, you might prevent a burglary before it begins.
Tell trusted people when you’re out of town: Let a friend know when you’re going out of town, and give them a spare key or door lock code so they can check the house. Although, keep your vacation plans off public social media sites if at all possible.
