Did you know that most thefts are committed by amateurs, often teens, who can easily be stopped with a few sensible precautions.? Check out some simple, common-sense advice from the SWM Safety / Neighborhood Watch Committee.
 
  • Park all vehicles in your garage and/or driveway. Cars on the road present an easier target for break-ins. As an added bonus, you won't run afoul of our covenants which do not permit street parking.
  • Make sure your windows are closed and your vehicle is locked. Use the key to lock your vehicle, making sure that you take it with you and do not hide a key on your vehicle.
  • Keep your garage closed when you are not entering or exiting your home.
  • Remove all valuables from your car, this includes pull-out stereo face plates, car phones/chargers and do not leave even a small amount of change in view, it’s an offer a desperate thief can’t refuse.
  • Invest in a good alarm system and use it. Seeing a car alarm will deter most burglars and encourage them to seek easier targets.
  • Do not leave your windows open, even a crack, in hot weather. There are certain burglar tools that take advantage of this practice. Instead, use an inexpensive sun shade for your front window.
  • Thieves take advantage of unlighted areas. Quickly replace bulbs outside your home and report street lights outages to Georgia Power or Greystone Power.
  • Participate in your community “Neighborhood Watch” program. Report suspicious activity and try to give an accurate description of persons or vehicles involved.
