Please take a moment to review your own security and help to prevent wintertime burglary:-
- Make sure your home is locked and secure when you go out and overnight and if you have an alarm make sure you are using it.
- If you are likely to return to your property after darkness consider using lights on timer switches, to make it look like someone is at home.
- Fake TV simulator lights can also be purchased and utilised.
- Radios can be left on, tuned in to a talk show, to make it sound like someone is in.
- If you are going away, tell a trusted neighbour and maybe ask if they can park a vehicle on your driveway.
- Report anyone acting suspiciously to the police on 101, or 999 in an emergency. Try to note what they look like, what they are wearing and details of any vehicle they might be using.
