As winter draws in, housebreakers will look to take advantage of the extended cover of darkness and to profit from any householders lax security measures.

Although Tayside Division will increase high visibility patrols during the hours of darkness over the winter months with the aim of preventing crime after dark, it is vital that residents also focus on their home security.

Remember a house that looks unoccupied is tempting to criminals.
