In their brochure, 'Is Your Home An Easy Target' the EPS suggest one of the simplest ways to keep crime down - "Be A Good Neighbour."
"Getting to know your neighbours is an excellent way to make sure your property stays safe day-to-day and when you're away.
Get to know your neighbours – residents should become familiar with the routine in their neighbourhoods."
“We all have a role in making our neighbourhoods safe and it’s as easy as getting to know the people that live beside you. When we know one another, we look out for one another."
Funny how civic authorities get it but so many churches do so little to encourage people to get on with actually doing it!
Get engaged in your neighbourhood. Lives are depending on it...
