According to Alarm System Report, over 2 million home burglaries are reported in the United States each year and, on average, a burglary of a home occurs every 13 seconds. That breaks down to about four burglaries a minute, 240 an hour, and nearly 6,000 a day. Is your home or business well-protected?
- Security Alarms: “Data showed that a steady decrease in burglaries in Newark between 2001 and 2005 coincided with an increase in the number of registered home burglar alarms,” said study author Dr. Seungmug (a.k.a. Zech) Lee.
- Windows and Doors: About 30% of all burglaries are through an open or unlocked window or door. For these reasons, it is important to ensure your windows are securely locked.
- Fencing: A fence is a great, cost-effective deterrent to criminal activity.
According to the DOJ, “the single most important CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) security feature is lighting.”
