    Darker Night’s Safety Advice
    When the longer winter nights arrive, take a fresh look at your home security.
    At home
    · Keep front and back doors locked at all times and keep keys and valuables
    out of sight and reach from cat flaps, letterboxes, and downstairs doors
    and windows
    · If you’re out in the evening make sure you leave a light on and draw the
    curtains. If it’s dark before you get home, use timer switches to turn on
    Energy-saving lights
    · Light up your front door with dusk to dawn lighting – make sure it’s visible
    from the street
    · Make sure your home is visible from the street by keeping bushes and
    fences less than one metre high at the front of your property
    · Don’t forget about garages, sheds and outbuildings – make sure they’re
    locked and secure too
    · Try not to leave your house in silent darkness. Just leaving a radio on
    could make a potential burglar think twice
    · Never leave a spare key outside your house, burglars know all the usual
    hiding spots
    · Keep bins away from windows when they’re not being used as they can be
    used as a climbing aid for burglars
    · Consider joining or setting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme.
    Please take this opportunity to review your own home security. If you require further specific free advice please contact your local Neighbourhood Team on 101.
    Out and about
    · Plan ahead before you go out. Know where you’re going, how you’ll get
    there, and how you’ll get back. Let someone know where you’re going,
    and be prepared for a change of plan
    · Keep your purse or wallet and keys close and secure. Only take out
    essential items, and if you can leave valuables at home, do
    · When you’re out, always walk with confidence, and stick to well-lit, busy
    areas, using the route you know best
    · Avoid quiet or badly-let alleyways, subways or isolated car parks. Walk
    down the middle of the pavement if the street is deserted
    · Remain aware of your surroundings – don’t walk along texting, making a
    phone call or listening to music. As well as being distracting, this
    advertises your valuable to criminals
    · Trust your instincts – if you don’t feel safe then change your route,
    remembering to stay in well-lit and busy areas. Don’t be tempted to take
    short cuts
    · Be a good friend and stay safe by sticking together. Always avoid walking
    alone at night
    · If you regularly walk home in the dark, get a personal attack alarm – they
    are widely available and inexpensive
    · If you regularly jog or cycle, vary your route and times you go out,
    particularly if you go alone. Try to avoid wooded or remote areas and stick
    to well-lit roads, or main paths and open spaces. Stay fully alert of your
    surroundings and don’t use headphones

This is what we have done

  • 01 March 2019 - Darker Nights
    Officers are attending reports of off-road bikes and issuing warning notices to those responsible. Please report any sitings with descriptions and direction of travel by ringing 101.
    Do you care for, or are you the family of an elderly or vulnerable adult who is at risk of going missing?  Have you heard of the Herbert Protocol?
    Sign up and work directly with the police and their partners to ensure their safety.  The Herbert Protocol is a scheme which will see family, friends, and care providers working together not only to prevent vulnerable adults going missing but to improve responses for locating them if they do.  The protocol will be running throughout County Durham and Darlington.  When you sign up, we will contact you to discuss the process, suggesting steps to prevent particularly vulnerable people going missing, as well as contingencies for a swift response should the individual fail to return. 
    To sign up contact 101 or email
