How does summer affect criminal activity?
There is a myth that has sprung up over the year that says there is a “summer crime wave” every year. Some people claim that summer brings a spike in criminal activity, but police departments have insisted that this is not really true. However, it should be said that there is a different way in which criminals may try to get into your home. For example, because many people are inclined to leave their garage doors open, this can become a major entry point for criminals. Another thing to consider is leaving your car windows down when you get out of your car. It can be very easy to take things from the car when the windows are down, so remain vigilant.
Which fence is the best to keep criminals out?
When it comes to keeping criminals from coming your way, you might want to invest in a fence. All fences provide something called a “mental barrier.” This means that some criminals will simply not want to approach your home at all because there is a fence there. Now, another thing that fences can provide is an obstacle that must be climbed over to get past. This will keep out a great many people who won’t want to alert your neighbors that something weird is happening. Now, when it comes to choosing a fence specifically to deter criminals, you should think about height and whether or not you can see through it. A privacy fence could protect criminals from prying eyes once they get inside the perimeter. A high chain link or picket fence will solve this problem for you.
