Despite the excellent work of the Burglary team we have sadly still seen some more South Cambs burglaries this week.
Burglars are taking advantage of the longer evenings and the tell-tale signs that there is nobody home – no lights on, no cars in the driveway etc.
Take action now – leave a porch/hall light on, put a timer switch in a downstairs room for afternoons/evenings and one set later in a bedroom.
Better still install a PIR LED floodlight at the front and back of your house/flat..
