Suffolk sees fall in crime after reducing nighttime lighting

Crime in Suffolk has fallen in areas where part-night lighting was introduced, according to an assessment by Suffolk County Council.

The council looked at crime rates in the fifteen weeks before and after the introduction of a £2.8 million Telensa control system, which allows some lights to be switched off for part of the night. It found that crime rates were lower in places where streetlighting was reduced between the hours of midnight and 5.30am.

Daily crime rates fell by 19 per cent within 80 metres of areas where part-night lighting has been introduced, according to a summary of the report published in the Lighting Journal. In areas where the lighting was left unchanged, crime rose during the same period. Overall, crime was down by about five per cent after the introduction of the system.

The report pointed out that the effect could partly be a result of ‘crime migration’, but added that ‘these areas are predominantly in town centres where CCTV is in operation’.

The council also found that in areas where lights were left on to help people walking home from pubs, pedestrians were funnelled down these routes, leading to an increase in antisocial behaviour.

A further benefit was that ambulances found it easier to locate the homes they were looking for at night, because with no streetlights on, it was easier to spot homes with their lights on.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2348105150446 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
