Our local police have urged residents to ‘Light up Havering’ and reduce crime.

  • If you’re out all day, then it’s advisable to use timer switches to automatically turn lights and a radio on when it gets dark.
  • Consider fitting door and window alarms. These can be cheap to buy and simple to fit.
  • Double lock your doors and consider fitting a burglar alarm.
  • If you go out in the evening, shut the curtains and leave lights on.

The Met Police have some excellent advice around crime prevention on their website – www.met.police.uk/cp/crime-prevention/residential-burglary/ or you can can contact the Emerson Park Safer Neighbourhood Teams via www.met.police.uk/a/your-area/met/havering/emerson-park  .
