How to Handle and Cope With a Dangerous Neighbor

Who are the dangerous neighbors?

Some neighbors are not worth knowing well, which is unfortunate but true. Perhaps their general behavior gives you the creeps or makes you feel unsafe. Perhaps you're awakened in the middle of the night by a lot of angry ranting. Perhaps they are perfectly decent people with an alarming collection of strange animals. Whatever the case may be, your instinct is to keep a safe distance.

What to Do If Your Neighbors Are Dangerous

Be cautious not to overreact if something about your neighbor appears to be off. Unusual behavior can be explained for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a person's level of danger. It could be beneficial to speak with the next-door neighbor to understand more about them. You might also enlist the help of a spokesperson from your neighborhood group or a building management business. It's helpful to understand your neighbor's preferences and boundaries so you don't cross them. Of course, if your neighbor commits serious crimes and threatens you, it's time to call the cops.

What to do Before Moving into a Neighborhood

It pays to do some investigation into a community before deciding to live there to avoid unsafe neighbors in the first place. Visit the neighborhood, talk to the locals, and read Nextdoor discussions about your neighborhood. You can also learn about local crime statistics by visiting sites or applications like SpotCrime, CityProtect, and Crime and Place. Family Watchdog is a useful resource for parents who want to know whether there are any child abusers in the area they're considering moving to.
