Good home security is the best way to reduce your chances of being burgled. A lot of burglaries occur on the spur of the moment, as a burglar may see an open window or other easy point of entry and take their chance. Criminals do not want to be seen or heard while committing crime – good lighting, house alarms and crunchy surfaces such as gravel are all effective deterrents.
