Now the darker nights are here, Safer Wyre Forest are encouraging residents to take a few simple steps to keep their homes safe and secure as part of the ‘Lighten up’ campaign, which reminds people that their home is less likely to be burgled if it appears occupied.
You can significantly reduce the chance of being burgled by taking a few simple precautions, especially at this time of year when we observe a peak in house burglaries. Most house break-ins are opportunistic, so don’t give thieves an opportunity.
People are also urged to property mark valuables and make the details viewable to the police by registering them on Immobilise: www.immobilise.com. Belongings can be registered for free and it improves the chance of getting them back if they are lost or stolen.
