To achieve that desired peaceful, and worry- free environment, here are some nifty steps in helping you ensure protection and security of the community:
If you're walking the neighborhood, here's what to look for:
• Recreational areas that have marked visible entry and exit points form a marking territory. These places provide people with a sense of ownership.
• Well-maintained properties that are heavily invested are certainly protected against crimes.
• A community should always provide a free line of sight. Shrubs and fences bordering walkways that are taller than 3 feet should be prohibited. Places where people walk and play should be visible from house windows.
• The night in the neighborhood should be filled with lighted porches and street posts.
• An active street life can be considered defense against street life, since people are outside to watch you and protect you.
Making the necessary action for a community inspection is a crucial determinant of quality of life. At the end of the day, a community that strives to keep its area and activities safe for all its members creates a vibrant and caring community that is a pleasant and enjoyable place to live.
