Burglary Of Your Home

  • Burglars let themselves in through unlocked doors or windows in 35% of all burglaries.
  • A large proportion of the burglaries that are being reported are down to people leaving their homes insecure.
  • You are ten times more likely to be burgled if you do not have basic security.
  • There are simple and easy ways of keeping your home safer from criminals that take only a few minutes to put into practice.
  • Locking doors and windows is key and is the most effective barrier against the burglar.

If you make your property more secure, it is a lot harder for criminals to break in and it is easier for the police to catch them.
