Bloxwich Police will be at the Stan Ball Centre on Tuesday 6 December giving out free timer switches to local residents following a spate of local burglaries.
PC Andy Smith and WPC Rachel Gallier will give out a maximum of two free timer switches per household and explain how to use them.
Young at Heart project co-ordinator Deb Brownlee said “West Midlands Police crime prevention strongly advise leaving a light on when not at home and also a radio. Timer switches can be used to give the impression that someone is at home and we are delighted to host the police to give out free timers”.
Local residents are welcome to call into the Abbotts Street, Bloxwich, Centre anytime between 1.30 and 3.30pm.
