May I remind everyone to consider Bright ideas for darker nights
As the nights get darker earlier, burglaries tend to increase,
so leave lights on inside your house.
- Leave a light on in more than one room, such as the lounge
and bedroom. Remember to choose low-energy or LED amps.
- Use a timer switch to operate the lights as it starts to get dark.
- Change the times that the lights come on to create the illusion
that someone is moving around inside the house.
- Make sure your front door is well lit and fully visible from the
street. Police recommend dusk to dawn lighting that automatically
comes on as it gets dark. Dusk to dawn lamp adaptors are
available from DIY stores.
- Keep shrubbery and hedges at the front pruned to below
1 metre to remove cover for a burglar to work unseen and
allow visibility by neighbours.
- Keep your curtains closed at night - if you are away, ask a
neighbour to close them for you.
- Consider a burglary alarm for the home and outside building(s) including shed(s).
- Check existing lighting is in good working order and replace
any faulty equipment.
- Remember to check batteries in torches
and smoke alarms.
