Police Scotland launched their annual national 'After Dark' campaign on Monday 11th October 2021. The campaign will run until Monday 25th October 2021 and is designed to raise awareness around home security.
In particular they want to remind people to make their homes appear occupied during the early evenings as the darker nights set in.
A house that looks unoccupied can become a target for criminals.
There are some simple things you can do to make your home less of a target, including:
- making sure windows and doors are locked
- fitting outside security lighting
- using timer switches on some internal lights.
