Craigavon Policing Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) are giving away free timer switches to help people with security and safety during the long and cold winter nights.

They can be collected at the Civic Centre later this month and are an excellent way of guarding against burglars.

Timer switches are a clever way of making your house look occupied even when you are out – and they are so simple to use they can be installed by anyone within a minute.

All you have to do is plug your lights or radio into the switch, set the time and your lights or radio will come on giving the impression someone is at home.

This sign of activity can be an excellent deterrent to burglars as it makes your home look occupied.

There are around 200 of these timer switches available and they will be given out on a first come first served basis – so don’t miss out on an excellent way to protect your home this winter.

People are invited to come along to the civic centre on Friday, January 23 between 10am and noon to pick yours up.
