Light up your home

Don't be left in the dark

Take a few simple steps to avoid becoming a victim of burglary.

  • Set a timer switch to turn your lights on when it gets dark - unlit houses are a give away that no one is at home.
  • Lock your doors, patios and downstairs windows - even when you are in.  Make sure you double check them again before you go to bed.
  • Don't leave car keys, ID cards or valuables near windows, doors or letterboxes where burglars can reach through to steal them.
  • Lock your garden gates and side entrances.  Don't leave tools lying around in the garden which could be used to break in to your home.

If you have information about a burglary call 101.

If you have a crime to report call 101 or in an emergency call 999.
