Stay Safe After Dark

As the clocks change, make sure that you don’t fall back on your home security as well. Darker nights means that it is easier for thieves to target your property.

Here is some advice to keep your home safe after dark:

  • Keep windows and doors locked
  • Secure sheds and garages
  • Fit/check outside security lighting is working
  • Fit a shed/garage alarm
  • Fit an intruder alarm
  • Record/security mark valuable property
  • Consider additional garage door locks
  • Use timer switches on lights
  • Secure bicycles  to a ground anchor
  • Consider leaving a radio or audio device on when not at home
