Be bright - Leave on a light

Alert message sent 10/10/2017 13:23:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

As the autumn nights draw in and winter approaches it's time to start thinking about making your home look occupied, even when you are out or away.

Timer switches can be purchased cheaply from most supermarkets and electrical goods retailers. Team this with a small lamp placed near a window and you're on your way to a home that is less attractive to opportunistic burglars.

Another option available is a small box called a fake TV which, when the ambient light gets low enough, mimics a switched on TV. This again can provide the appearance of an occupied home.

There is lots of useful advice available on the Thames Valley Police website crime prevention page. Just following this link to go to the page:

Remember. Be bright. Leave on a light.
