Almost every home in every neighborhood is a target for burglary, and it does not matter if you live in the city or the country. You need to take a gung ho approach to home safety, so that not only do you and your family derive protection, your valuables do as well. Let’s face it, you would probably be relieved if someone did break into your home and the worst thing that happened was that the burglar made off with some jewelry or other valuables. Home security systems divert burglars who want to break in without complications. If you install even a basic alarm system, and display tags in your windows and doors that you have 24 hour protection, a would be thief will look to your neighbor’s house before taking the chance breaking into yours.

Don’t take the chance of becoming a victim of burglary, which is often accompanied by violence. Protect your family with a home security system that will safeguard your most precious valuables, the people you love. With all the latest kidnappings and violent burglaries being reported, now is the time to protect your home and family, not later.

It's no secret that crime is increasing every year and is invading what once were considered “safe communities. " As the following FBI report shows, crime is on the rise. Crime against property occurs on the average of 20 times a minute with an estimated $1,000 loss for each occurrence. Burglary is a crime of opportunity where entry is gained due to the carelessness of homeowners.

Single family homes are twice more likely to be burglarized than apartments. While receiving a lot of publicity when it happens, hotels and motels account for less than 3% of all burglaries. The most likely things to be stolen in a burglary are cash, small electronic equipment, home computers, cameras, jewelry, furs, tools and hand guns.

Few people really bother about security until something happens to them or a neighbor. The public's complacent attitude is the burglar's best friend and your worst enemy. There are many things the average person can do to make their home less of a target. This report will get you started on the right road. Remember, the two things a burglar fears most are being seen and having to take too much time to complete the crime.

While burglars typically “target" a home when no one is home, if you surprise one in the act, your chances of being injured are too high to attempt to intervene. A sobering statistic shows many homeowners attempting to defend (themselves, family members, or their property) with a weapon end up having it turned on them.

Fortunately, you can prevent this from ever happening to you and your family by having a home security system installed. A home safety system should include some type of fire detection, as well as protection against break-ins. Some systems even include medical assistance and remote assistance for the times when you need help and you are away from home.

Tips To Secure Your Home

There are some basic tips that you can follow to help prevent your home from being burglarized. First, make sure all doors and windows are locked at all times, even when you are home. Secure sliding glass doors with bars to block the closed door, and do the same for basement windows and garage doors. Install peepholes in doors so that you never have to open the door blindly.

There are so many safeguards you can take to insure that you don’t become a victim of burglary and/or violent crime.
