Police Scotland launched their annual national ‘After Dark’ campaign on the 11th October 2021. The campaign will run until Monday 25th October 2021 and is designed to raise awareness around home security.
In particular they are reminding homeowners to make their home 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 a householder can do to make their home less of a target. These include ensuring windows and doors are locked, fitting outside security lighting and using timer switches on some internal lights.
