Business Burglaries in the 21st Century and How to Prevent Them

TAGS: , , , , ,

However, with the development of more sophisticated business security systems and other anti-theft devices such as CCTV cameras and alarm systems, burglary rates have fluctuated and even declined the past few years. According to statistics based on Victoria police records, overall crimes decreased by 5% while burglaries have gone down 3 percent.
