Shockingly, there’s been an average 38 burglaries reported each week in west Surrey since April 1st. Added together, this equals over 300 burglaries reported in Surrey Heath alone in just over 8 weeks! To put this into perspective, in April 2017 there were 524 cases of burglary recorded across the whole county! Consequently, Surrey police are urging homeowners right across Surrey to be especially vigilant to prevent the risk of being burgled this Summer. However, sometimes you can do everything in your power to reduce the risk of break-ins, e.g. consistently locking all windows, doors and fences and putting all keys out of sight – but if you have an insecure and inefficient door this will really scupper your efforts to keep burglars at bay. Although, it would appear that home security doesn’t rank particularly highly with UK homeowners considering the following statistics:
- In the majority of burglary cases, criminals enter the building through a front or back door
- 70% of homeowners don’t have a burglar alarm fitted
- 16% of homeowners admitted not bothering to lock their windows and doors every time they went out!
