Darker nights are here

Darker nights are here so it’s a good time to make sure your home is safe and secure.

Now the clocks have gone back, safe & sound, Dudley’s community safety partnership is encouraging residents to follow some easy home safety tips.

 

Simple tips include using a timer switch for lights so your home is not left in darkness, using door and window locks and keeping sheds and garages locked.

 

People should also register their personal items on the immobilise database by visiting www.immobilise.com

 

The database is free and used by police and can help recover your property and capture thieves

 

Councillor Gaye Partridge, cabinet member for community safety, said:

 

““It’s really important to remember to secure your home against thieves.

 

“Darker nights can make our homes more vulnerable but there are lots of ways you can safeguard your property by following just a few simple steps.
