The importance of home security

For most of us, our home is our safe place. It’s a somewhere to come back to after a day at work, to raise a family in and to relax in. But how safe is it in reality?

The number of burglaries in the UK are falling. The incidents in 2015 were down 33% from the same period 10 years earlier (Jan-Dec 2005) and 70% just 20 years ago (Jan-Dec 1995).

However, according to the Office for National Statistics, there were 401,718 police-reported burglaries between January 2015 and December 2015 – giving a burglary rate at 7 offences per 1,000 people.
