UK burglary statistics

Posted: 20th September 2009

So here's a few interesting burglary statistics in the UK: - Most burglaries are carried out by opportunist thieves.  In two out of 10 burglaries, they don’t even have to use force - they get in through an open door or window. - A third of burglars get in through a window. - Two thirds of burglars gain entry through a door. So they you go.  For a starting point we'd recommend using your common sense and locking your doors and closing your windows - however, of course for premium security for your house there's nothing better than an Alarm Monitoring Company monitored alarm!
