According to the Australian Institute of Criminology Burglaries in Australia are on a rise, and with home robberies increasing so too is the terror that can accompany it.
Statistics are increasingâ€¦
In the last 6 years crime against homes has risen by 6% in Victoria alone.Â The statistics show that burglars usually burglars take money (19%) or jewelry (18%) first, and following that will burgle for firearms, laptops, and TVs; with apple products also high on their list.
Homes are most vulnerable during Christmas and New Year, more so than any other time of year. The reasons being people go away on vacation, nights are longer so more time is spent away from the home doing outdoor activities or gathering at friendsâ€™ houses. These factors make it easier for a house to be burglarized.
Sky News HD reported another factor that plays a role in the increase of Christmas burglaries is Alcohol. When people drink they are more careless with home security and thus their homes are an easy target for intruders. In fact another report from NSW of crime statistics and research, states a rise in burglaries on New Yearâ€™s Eve by 50%.
Australians are quickly becoming aware of this uprising crime with 36% of the Australian population of the belief that their house will be the next target. A survey from RACQ’s inaugural insurance Home security index showed that 50% of the people in Queensland are afraid to leave their home for fear of a robbery.
To further peopleâ€™s fears, the report went on to state that fewer than one in five burglaries end in arrest.
To aid these fears, and take a stand against criminals, preventive measures can be taken before their homes are burgled deter it from happening to them. Crime prevention and securing your house before it happens is an excellent deterrent for home intruders.
