The majority of burglaries are committed by opportunists who take advantage of open or vulnerable doors and windows, keys left in insecure hiding places and unlocked side gates, for example.

In around 30 per cent of break-ins, particularly those that take place in the spring and summer, entry is gained through insecure doors and windows, especially at the rear of the property.

You can take some simple and cost-effective steps to tighten your home security and dramatically reduce your chances of becoming a victim of burglary. The same applies if your home has been broken into before – please address any weaknesses in your home security.
