‘Bad guys don’t want to be seen’: Richmond Heights police start lighting safety initiative
RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio (WOIO) - Richmond Heights police have teamed up with Dunn Hardware to start a lighting safety initiative.
Outdoor lighting on a home can help prevent crime because “bad guys don’t want to be seen”, said Richmond Heights Police Chief Tom Wetzel.
Dunn Hardware, located at 5144 Wilson Mills Road, is donating a limited number of dusk to dawn light bulbs to Richmond Heights residents.
“It gets dark, they come on, you wake up, they go off. But they’re really bright and what’s good is bad guys don’t want to be seen. They’re easier to identify someone if you can see them with lights on, Ring doorbells can pick up on them and by having these lights on, they’re low energy and efficient,” said Chief Wetzel.
The light bulbs can be picked up at the police department at 27201 Highland Road Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
