Speaking at Fermoy Garda Station, Crime Prevention Office Sgt John Kelly said: "I would like remind everyone that if you are going out, you should endeavor to make sure their home looks occupied - to Lock Up and Light Up. Use timer switches to turn on lights, lock all doors and windows, store keys away from windows and letterboxes, and use your alarm, even when you are at home."
