Towards the end of last year, the head of the new National Police chiefs council Sara Thornton, revealed that due to budget cuts and the changing nature of criminality meant that Police in England and wales may no longer attend Burglaries.
This surprised a lot of people across the nation but would you be more shocked to learn that 25 per cent of Brits have no home security at all.
Read what the Daily Express makes of all this:
While Sara Thornton believes there are "a lot less burglaries" now, a whopping 56 per cent of people have experienced a break-in, or know local people who have experienced one.
But while it's true burglaries have generally shown a long-term downward trend across the UK, it's worrying to think that people are becoming complacent about the threat of break-ins – more than 30,000 of which still happen nationwide every month.
New research, from the self-storage company Space Station has revealed 25 per cent of those surveyed admitted they have no home security at all, while another 14 per cent have only spent £50 or less in protecting their home indicating to a lax approach to protecting their home and belongings.
Burglar alarms were the most commonly-purchased form of home security, followed by window alarms and floodlights - but is that enough?
