Leave a light on….

….leave burglars in the dark

Nottinghamshire Police have issued the following advice to help you protect your home as the nights get darker.

1. Leave a light on inside your house. Remember to choose low energy lamps
2. Use a timer switch to operate the lights as is starts to get dark. Change the times that the lights come on to simulate an occupied home
3. Make sure your front door is well lit. Use dusk to dawn lighting that automatically comes on as it gets dark
4. Make sure you keep your doors and windows locked.
