While we hate to mention it in August, winter is coming. This means that the darker nights will soon be upon us and the colder weather too. Is your home secure for the dark nights?
Did you know that there is a 25% spike in burglaries during the autumn and winter months? This is because burglars like to work under the cover of darkness. A darker evening means they are less likely to be seen. Therefore they can steal and escape quicker.
Reports show that 1 in 10 of all domestic and house burglaries take place during the month of November. This is for various reasons. Again thieves prefer to work under the cover of darkness. Some thieves may have families and they want Christmas presents for them. Meanwhile some thieves steal to order, for other people.
November brings colder nights too, so burglars know that if they get caught they could get put in prison where they will have a roof over their heads.
Research shows that 23% of people hide their valuables in drawers and wardrobes. Burglars know this too. If you are unlucky enough to have your home broken into, make sure your valuables are well hidden. Drawers and wardrobes are one of the first places that burglars will look.
It has also been shown in research that a home with no visible home security is 300% more likely to be burgled. How is your home secure for the dark nights?
