Alarming Rise in Burglaries: 6 Surprising Facts

Alarming Rise in Burglaries: Six Surprising Facts

There are a number of surprising facts about an alarming rise in burglaries. In a nation where burglaries occur every 30 seconds, the statistics are undeniably unsettling. The FBI reports that a staggering two burglaries happen each minute, contributing to over 3,000 daily incidents. With this alarming frequency, a State of Safety Survey reveals that break-ins and burglaries are the second most-feared property crime. 

The financial aftermath of  burglary is substantial. Beyond the monetary toll, victims often grapple with the emotional impact, as burglars frequently target items of sentimental value, leaving lasting scars on their mental health. In many cases, valuables and personally identifying information are stolen.

1. The Reality of Rise in Burglaries

Our survey findings align with national concerns – burglary is one of the most-feared property crimes. Vehicle break-ins can happen at any time. Cars parked in driveways or streets can be easy targets. Burglaries also can often occur during the day, with statistics showing that large numbers happen when people are at work or running errands. However, a large number of them also occur when people are present. Armitek Security Film provides around-the-clock protection, ensuring your property remains secure at all times at your weakest entry point, glass.

Smash and Grab®

More and more vehicles that have other security measures are finding criminals breaking in through glass, stealing items and leaving quickly (the average smash-and-grab takes about 3 seconds), making the other security measures nearly ineffective. When criminals are not able to gain access through the glass, they fear getting caught and leave quickly for an easier burglary target. 

5. Vehicle Windows

Vehicle glass windows can be easy to shatter, leaving them vulnerable to attack. An important safety option includes the installation of shatter-resistant film to protect against a rise in burglaries, car jackings, and other threats.
