A reminder to adjust your clocks and watches
« on: October 26, 2004, 08:35:46 pm »
The clocks go back at 0200 BST on Sunday 31 October as British Summer Time comes to an end. Police have e-mailed this site with a warning to local residents that this period usually results in an increase in burglaries.  This is from the Herts Police news release...

Quote
WITH the clocks going back this weekend and the nights starting to draw in, police are urging residents to make sure their homes have the ‘lived-in’ look in the late afternoon.

Each year at this time, the number of home burglaries committed in the late afternoon and early evening increases. This is because it is obvious to burglars that no one is home. Homes are left in complete darkness because daylight has faded before the occupiers are back from work or a day out.

Police are encouraging residents not to let their home become a target and to buy, and use, timer switches for lights.

Force Crime Reduction Officer, Andy Reynolds, said: “Timer switches are inexpensive and only cost around £5. Used correctly, they can significantly reduce the risk of your home being broken into.

A reminder to turn your clocks back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday because Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday 26 Oct at 2am. This means it will be lighter in the mornings with sunrise an hour earlier.
