In the mean time here are some stats.
Statistics show that in Australia someone is burgled
just about every minute*.
According to the Bureau of Crime Statistics only 5 per cent of break and enter crimes are solved by the police, so the chance of recovering your stolen possessions is very low.
The best you can do is try to keep the burglars out. Here is some advice that may help.
Tips to secure your home
A combination of simple measures can help safeguard your home.
- Install a burglar alarm. We offer a range of effective solutions
- Lock up every time you leave – windows and doors
- Lock your side gates, garden shed and garage. Always lock doors between your house and garage
- Install movement-activated sensor lights and trim trees and shrubs, close to windows and doors that provide cover for intruders
- List all your valuable items, photograph antiques and jewellery and keep receipts with your list to help with insurance claims
- Make sure your home contents insurance policy is current. And that you’re insured for the right amount to cover the replacement cost of your contents at today’s prices
- Don’t leave spare keys outside. Burglars know all the hiding spots
- Don’t advertise that you’re out or away. Whether you’re away for a day or two or a few weeks, try and keep your home looking as lived-in as possibleDon’t advertise your possessions. Don’t leave the box of your new TV outside the house, cut it up and recycle
