Safety and Security Tips for Apartment Living in Lexington, KY

Lexington, KY, June 5, 2013 /MM Global Wire/ -- Lexington Apartment Guide releases ten tips to help renters of apartments in Lexington enjoy a safe and secure living environment.

Townes Rawls, owner of Lexington Apartment Guide, states that “Lexington is a city where crime rates are lower than the national average and residents feel safe walking around the city.  But, crime does exist in every metropolitan city, so Lexington Apartment Guide is publishing these tips to ensure that people renting apartments in Lexington are safe and secure.”

#1  When renting an apartment, consider requesting an upper level unit, if available.

#2  Test and examine each door, lock and window lock to ensure they function properly.

#3  Chain locks can be disabled simply, so use peep holes to determine who may be knocking on your door.  If there is no peep hole ask unexpected visitors to place a business card under the door.  Call the property manager to verify that he or she has reason to be at your unit. In the event that the person is not known by you or the property manager, do not open the door and call security.

#4  Consider creating a “buddy plan” when doing laundry, and do your laundry during times where there will be more traffic.

#5  Parking lots are targets for vandalism and petty theft.  Park near well lit areas and do not leave valuables in your car.

#6  Use only your first initial on the door, mailbox or in the phonebook.

#7  If there is a sliding glass door; get a secondary lock, like a “Charley-Bar”

#8  Use your voicemail wisely.  If you live alone, state “We are not available to take your call right now…” vs. “I am not home”.  And, never state that you are gone for any specific duration of time, like “We are on vacation…”

#9  Get to know your neighbors, and keep an eye out for each other.

#10  Always lock your door – even when you leave your apartment to get the mail.  If you have suspicion that someone has entered your apartment, do not go inside, and call security or the police.

While apartments in Lexington are safe and secure, it is always wise to exercise caution to minimize the likelihood of becoming a target of crime.  Simply follow these safety and security tips for apartment living.
