Burglary. It’s a scary notion to fathom being vulnerable in your own home, but in this day and age, burglary is far more common than we would like to admit. Within the UK alone, a home is burgled every 37 seconds. Even more frightening are the one million burglaries and attempted burglaries that occur in the UK each year. 13% of households are burgled twice and 7% of households are burgled three or more times!Between the years of 1981 – 1993, burglaries increased by 137% in the UK. Aggravated burglary (cases in which occupants are home at the time) rose an additional 14% in 2002.
