Crime Prevention Tip of the Week

The Madison Police Department's Crime Prevention Tip of the Week.

Motion light verses dusk to dawn light.

Which light should you choose to best protect your property?

Motion lights are so common that they may be viewed like car alarms. When the public hears a car alarm they no longer think of a car theft but think of it as a false alarm.

Using a dusk to dawn light may send a continued message that the intended area is always being monitored. 

If you have questions about crime prevention contact, Madison Police Department Crime Prevention Coordinator Rodney Wilson at or call 608-266-4238.
