Light up your life

As winter draws near and it is dark from
late afternoon, your empty, unlit home may
be more vulnerable to opportunist burglars.
See below for some helpful hints on how to
protect your home during dark
winter evenings:
• use light timers inside your home.
These timers can be set to come on as it
gets dark and set in at different times in
different rooms to give the impression of
movement around the home
• use exterior lights to cover the front and rear of the property
• join Darlington Neighbourhood Watch and receive regular crime
prevention messages. For further information contact (01325) 346832.
If you would like a home security survey from your local Police Community Support
Officer please contact Durham Constabulary on 0345 60 60 365 or the Safer
Neighbourhood Unit on (03125) 346844. Monthly PACT (Partners and Communities
Together)meetings take place in this area for further information contact 0345 60 60
365 or visit
