Preventing theft in your own home

Preventing theft in your own home

Burglary is always a crime of opportunity. Burglars look for easy targets. If you take a few simple and inexpensive steps to make sure your home is not an attractive target, you’ll greatly reduce your chances of becoming a victim.

Studies show that most burglars attack during the daytime when dense bushes and trees protect them from view, and the building appears unoccupied.

  • One-third of burglars enter from the basement.
  • One-third of burglars force entry through a window or door.
  • One-third of burglars gain access from an unlocked/open door or window.
