Wireless Burglar Alarms help prevent a rise in burglary rates during hot weather

Filed under: Burglar Alarms — admin @ 10:59 am

Police are warning of an increase in burglary during heatwaves. Burglars are cashing in on the hot weather, leaving sun-seekers to count the cost. Windows and doors left open or unlocked while residents are out or even in the back garden, are an invitation to criminals, police have warned.

There were 12 house break-ins across Middlesbrough last weekend and the majority of houses broken into were unsecured, unlocked and without alarms.  Items stolen included computers and other electrical equipment, jewellery, purses containing cash and bank cards, and even a child’s car seat.

The haul from one house in Margaret Street, North Ormesby, included a car, after a two-in-one burglary. Now, Cleveland Police are urging householders to “alarm it lock it or lose it”.

The monitoring service even informs you of power failure or interruption with the telephone line.

Middlesbrough CID, said: “It’s frustrating for us to learn of the figures for last weekend’s breakins – we repeatedly run campaigns and operations targeting house burglary and putting burglars behind bars. Generally the message is getting across and we are seeing good results. ”

Terry Rattee, Managing Director of Crime Prevention Products added: “With the recent warm weather I can only assume people are going out to enjoy the sunshine and forgetting to lock their doors & windows, or having no alarm on the property thereby giving opportunist thieves the perfect chance to take the householders’ property.”
