Craigavon Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) and the PSNI are providing advice over the festive period on domestic burglary and getting home safe.

The ‘Don’t let burglars have a prosperous New Year’ campaign is aimed at preventing burglary within local homes by providing a practical ten point checklist on how to effectively protect your property during and after Christmas.

Thousands of flyers with the message and checklist will be distributed by the local Neighbourhood Policing Teams to groups throughout the borough.

Top tips include - don’t leave presents or gifts in view from outside, lock all doors and windows, even when at home and make homes look occupied even when unoccupied.

The Get Home Safe Bus Service, will also be in operation every Saturday night as usual and also tonight (Friday) and Boxing Day.

Informative postcards will also be distributed to off-licences and shoppers, offering information on drinking safety tips and advice on looking out for others including children and neighbours when at or hosting a party.
