Luckily, there are a number of weapons to draw in the battle against these frightening facts.

1. Learn the mindset of a burglar. By thinking like a thief, you can adjust your home and surroundings to make things harder for any opportunist!

2. Deter burglars from targeting your property. If your home looks unsecured to a burglar, it’s the equivalent of leaving your window wide open! Consider protecting yourself with an alarm or domestic CCTV system.
