Light up Havering – Keep your home safe
Our local police Safer Neighbourhood Teams have urged residents to ‘Light up Havering’ and reduce crime.
- If you’re out all day, then it’s advisable to use timer switches to automatically turn lights and a radio on when it gets dark.
- Consider fitting door and window alarms. These can be cheap to buy and simple to fit.
- Double lock your doors and consider fitting a burglar alarm.
- If you go out in the evening, shut the curtains and leave lights on.
The Met Police have some excellent advice around crime prevention on their website – www.met.police.uk/cp/crime-prevention/residential-burglary/ or you can give the Safer Neighbourhood Teams a call (Upminster Ward – 0208 721 2726 or Cranham Ward – 0208 721 2578).
