Your home security should come first
The need to consider home security is growing. Thieves and con men, particularly opportunists, look for vulnerabilities when singling out a home to burgle. Poorly fitted windows, rotting and warped doors, not to mention windows that don’t lock are like red flags to a bull where crime is concerned. That is why thieves looking for easy pickings will always choose a vulnerable home. It makes the job of getting in and out easily and quickly a doddle.
With recorded crime at its highest level for ten years, there has never been a better time to consider how secure your home is. The Office for National Statistics says recorded crime in England and Wales rose by 10 per cent last year, a shocking figure that no homeowner should ignore. With police numbers at one of their lowest levels in more than a decade, burglary is on rise with 10,500 more cases reported last year alone.
