Now that the we have turned back time –
Doors and windows closed tight- curtains drawn – central heating burning up your hard earned cash – TV providing some entertainment – a typical home on a typical evening any where in the UK during the long months of winter.
There is one thing related to your home that is notably different at this time of year – its pretty obvious but most of us just ignore it and continue to take life for granted – so whats noticably different – easy really THE RISK – would be burglars love the dark and with an average eleven to twelve hours a day of dusk to dawn for the next few months the opportunities that we collectively open up to them are endless.
A recent article – “Households at risk of surge in burglaries after clocks go back” in the Lancashire Telegraph summed up the risks and just how casually we the general public take those risks – take for instance the base statistics –
“Last year the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) reported that there were an estimated 785,000 incidents of domestic burglary in the UK and most were on vulnerable and compromised properties.
Recent surveys suggest 54% of UK adults do not have security systems or burglar alarms installed in their homes 74 %of burglar alarms, already installed, do not contact the police.
- only 11 per cent believe that their household and possessions are safe and protected against burglar
- 31% of us have accidently left their windows open
- 20 per cent have left their doors unlocked.
- only 23 per cent use a light timer when they go out of the house for long periods,
- only 18 per cent have movement sensors installed and
- only 9 per cent have security cameras in their home.”
And all of this is before we consider those who might as well leave their doors open because they are prepared to tell the world their every movement using social media – unsurprisingly the more professional burglars can easily link individual properties in their area with the homeowner’s social media accounts and if you tell them you’re out – they may very well be in.
