Learn tips and tricks for deterring crime in your neighborhood.

October is for Celebrating Halloween *and* Safe Communities

Here are some ways to deter crime on your property from the Denver Police Department and the LCMA:

Landscaping: The LCMA has guidelines for good landscape maintenance that also make our community safer.  For example, keep trees trimmed to provide eight feet of clearance from sidewalks and streets.  The Denver Police Department (DPD) also recommends that you keep bushes trimmed to six inches below windows and three feet from doors. 
Lighting and Timers: Motion activated outdoor lighting is very effective in deterring crime. In addition, lights on timers in your home help to set a schedule of activity that is consistent even when you are not present. Leaving porch lights on or having landscaping that incorporates lighting is also recommended. DPD has a extensive list of suggestions around the use of lights, timers, and even radios to deter unwanted activity. 
Doors, Windows & Garages:  Close and lock doors and windows when you're away and when you're home. Making sure that your deadbolt locks meet the criteria for being effective. For window and sliding glass doors it is recommended that you use an additional locking mechanism to ensure security. Keep garage doors closed when not present, even if you only leave for a few minutes. In addition, DPD recommends that garage door openers be removed from your vehicle if your vehicle is parked in front of your home but not in the garage. 
House Numbers: The LCMA requires clearly, legible house numbers on the front of the home and, if you have an alley-facing garage, on the garage. DPD also recommends them so emergency personnel can find your home. 

Vehicle Safety:  Keep vehicles locked at all times and don't leave valuable items inside.  If you park your vehicle in your driveway, make sure it is well-lit or use motion-activated lighting.
