THINGS TO KNOW – A home in darkness is a sign that it is empty. Burglaries tend to increase during the winter months as the day gets shorter and darker earlier.

THINGS TO DOLight Up: Keeping a light on or using timer switches is a brilliant way to turn on lights when you’re not at home. Look in when you’re out: Keeping the television or radio on to make it look like someone is in. Alarm: Installing a burglar alarm is always a good deterrent. Lock up: Always lock windows and doors, even at night. Remember not to keep valuables on display where they can be seen.
