The latest Home Office crime statistics reveal a worrying increase in domestic break ins, with offence rates increased by 14 per cent, year on year.
Due to the ongoing effects of the credit crunch, more and more people are struggling to make ends meet, so opportunistic criminals are much more likely to break into homes looking for valuable portable goods to sell for quick cash.
It is estimated that nine out of every ten thefts are opportunistic and that one in five burglaries occur, because a window or door wasn’t properly protected; all issues which have easy and cost effective solutions.
