Safety Tip: Keep Outside Lights on Overnight

From the NYPD Community Affairs Bureau

It will cost you almost $2000 to replace a laptop and over $500 for a TV if a burglar takes the one you own – but it costs only about a dime to keep a light on all night at your door or in your window. Those dimes are well spent if they protect all of your valuables.

It is a simple fact that criminals do not like bright places. If one house is brightly lit, and another has no lights, criminals will generally head for the dark one. No one likes to attract attention, especially when your intentions are no good!

Deny a burglar the opportunity to make you their victim. Keep outside lights on around your house, or in your windows through the night. Now that is a “bright” idea!
