In meteorological terms, Autumn began on September 1st and we can see already darker nights are creeping in! The Bobby Scheme would like to remind you the importance of keeping your homes secure throughout the darker winter months and to stop the opportunist burglar taking advantage of homes that look unoccupied.
- make sure you have good lighting, both inside and outside of the house. Check that your outside lighting works. Use timer switches if you go out to make sure the house looks occupied.
- Lock all your windows and doors even when at home
- Keep all your garden furniture and equipment in a secure garage or shed
- If you have a burglar alarm – use it!
