Security in Knowing and Helping your Neighbors

There is nothing better than living in a nice peaceful neighbour hood were all of your neighbors look out for each other and you can count on them to help if you have a problem. Many neighbour hoods have started neighbour hood watch programs while others are much less formal. We have identified a few steps you can take to ensure that your neighbor hood is secure as well as provided a reference to another web site that outlines a neighbourhood watch program.

Get to know your Neighbors

If you do not know your neighbors, you probably should. There are all types of situations that may come up that if you had known your neighbors, it would have made your day a lot nicer. In addition while you are away , you will have the peace of mind knowing that someone is keeping an eye on your home for you. Combine this with a monitored alarm system and you have everything covered. Here are a few points to remember.

  • Know your neighbors by first name
  • Have their phone numbers handy
  • Establish a neighborly relationship, provide help when needed
  • Only ask them to look after your home once you have got to know them
  • If you plan to be away let them know
  • Also let them know who has keys for your home and how they can be contacted
  • Help out your neighbors when you can

This little added bit of security will help improve the security of your overall neighbor hood. Everybody will observe when strangers come into the neighbor hood and if there is a problem at your home they will know who to call to advise them.
