(Seaford, Del.) -The Seaford Police Chief Robert Kracyla and the city are teaming up with the non-profit help initiative to provide free LED lights to more than 400 residents.
"So we are really excited about this program as it will shine a light on a problem that we have and that is a crime, and so literally we will be shining a light on the issue of crime in the streets," said Kracyla.
Charles Kistler with the Help Initiative is going door to door. He's installing the lights in areas where there is not a lot of lighting. The Seaford Police Chief said that this program will help prevent crime.
" I think the light will be a deterrent to the crime and because the criminal will not recognize that so it won't be an easy opportunity for them and will make it much harder now for them and maybe not do it," said Kracyla."I believe it will be apart of the crime reduction strategy."
The lights are energy efficient and will also save the homeowners money. They will stop handing the lights out in December.
