With Burglary at it's highest during Autumn we offer some advice and tips on burglary prevention.
So autumn is upon us, its already getting colder & darker. Unfortunately as the days get darker and the nights start to grow longer the threat of burglary also increases.
Opportunistic thieves love the dark so as we move towards the clocks going back and the sun going down much earlier we also must look at how secure our homes and businesses are to avoid becoming a burglary victim.
Crime statistics from UKCRIMESTATS show that burglarlies rise rapidly in the autumn months. During this period, properties remain in darkness for much longer periods which make them easier to target, especially if there are no obvious signs there is anyone home or that you have effective security measures in place.
Burglary, on the whole, is an opportunist crime, with burglaries often resulting from insecure premises.
A burglar will select their target because it offers them the best opportunity to carry out their crime undetected and with the fewest number of obstacles in their way. A building that presents itself as unoccupied and insecure is far more likely to be targeted than one which is properly secured.
Don't let your home become a target. Protect your home by taking simple steps such as using timers to turn lights and radios on; fitting intruder alarms; making sure your home is locked before going out and keeping valuables out of view. Having a monitored alarm system with police response will ensure that if you are not home the police will be alerted as soon as there is a confirmed alarm.
