Stronghold Direct have created this exclusive infographic which details interesting facts related to burglary activity within the UK. Insights include the rate of burglaries figures and actions you can take to improve your home security and prevent burglary.
Knowing how to keep your home and your family safe and secure is essential for all homeowners. There are attempted burglaries every 45 seconds and only 13.6% of burglaries result in arrests! Making sure that your home looks secure is vital when preventing a burglary as it’s reported that most burglaries are not pre-planned and are by opportunist criminals. The best way to stop this is by improving your security.
It may seem too simple but burglars tend to gain access through the front door. This is down through kicking the door in or breaking a week lock. This is highly important in protecting your home and your family from suffering this traumatic experience.
The infographic is mainly focused on the use of security alarms and how they prevent and deter burglars. Additionally, it also includes a great amount of information on door locks that provide high security levels and window security. Stronghold Direct used their long-standing experience to offer advice on how you can take precautions when you leave your premises for an extended amount of time.
This infographic provides everything you need to know about burglary attempts and how to avoid it.
