As the days get shorter, burglaries tend to go up, as burglars see it as a better chance to break into homes unnoticed.
A lot of us are aware of this. A survey by security experts, ADT, found that 76.5% of Brits feel more worried about their home’s safety during the Autumn. Unfortunately, burglary rates in many places are still too high.
To remind everyone how important it is to take steps to keep their homes safe, October is declared National Home Security Month, which has been going on since 2013. You can use their postcode checker to see how safe your neighbourhood is.
If there’s any hint that your home might not be secure enough, you need to act fast. Doing nothing might invite trouble.
