With the clocks going back from the early hours of tomorrow (Sunday) it’s important that residents stay vigilant around home security. Statistics indicate that there is generally an increase in house burglaries at this time of year due to darker evenings when people are out or still at work. Try to make your house appear occupied even when you are out – consider the use of a timer switch for your lights or maybe leave a radio/TV on.  Make sure your doors/windows are secure before you go out and even when you are at home.  A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF HOUSE BURGLARIES ARE COMMITTED BY OPPORTUNISTIC CRIMINALS SO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DON’T GIVE THEM ANY OPPORTUNITY TO STEAL FROM YOU
