Winter is coming - Keep your home safe

Evenings are getting darker as we get closer to the winter months and the clocks go back at the end of the month (Sunday 29 October 2017 - when clocks go back by one hour at 2am), therefore we want to remind you how you can keep your home safer.

Protect your home in winter

Leave a light on inside your home. Remember to choose low energy lamps.

Use a timer switch - These operate the lights as it starts to get dark. Change the times that the lights come on to simulate an occupied home.

Make sure your front door is well lit - Use dusk to dawn lighting that automatically comes on as it gets dark.

Keep your house secure - Make sure you keep your doors and windows locked at all times.

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
