An Englishman’s Home is His Castle“, so when it comes to protecting it, you’d think that he’d do everything in his power to secure it! Yet every year, millions of pounds worth of goods are burgled from people’s homes, never to be found again. This not only happens in England but in every city, town and village across the UK. Here’s the facts…

  • Every 37 seconds a house in the UK is burgled. By the time you’ve finished reading this article, 2 homes will have been broken in to.
  • There are over 1 million burglaries and attempted burglaries each year in the UK.
  • There is a 13% chance your home will be burgled more than twice and around 7% chance for it to be targetted three times or more.
  • Between 25% to 50% of domestic burglaries happen because doors and windows have been left unlocked.
  • Domestic burglary is on the increase!
  • Home security is the best way to reduce your chances of being burgled.

This year alone thousands of people will be heading out on celebratory nights out only to return to find their hard earned cash, goods and more importantly their children’s Christmas presents gone.
