Divisional crime prevention officer, Sergeant Ber Leech is appealing to homeowners to properly secure their homes over the festive season.

“With Christmas just around the corner I would like to remind everyone of a few simple tips from our ‘Lock Up Light Up’ campaign so as to keep your home more secure over the festive period,” she said
