The good news is that in recent years the number of burglaries in North Devon has gone down. However that doesn't mean they don't happen anymore, or that we should become complacent about security.

The good news is that in recent years the number of burglaries in North Devon has gone down.  However that doesn't mean they don't happen anymore, or that we should become complacent about security.

In August 2012, there were 12 burglaries in Barnstaple, six in Ilfracombe and four in Bideford. As anyone who has been a victim of burglary will tell you, it is a very distressing experience which can leave them feeling unsafe in their homes for years to come. The worry is that with the current recession and fewer police officers on the streets, burglaries could begin to rise again.

Many people install a burglar alarm only after they've been burgled. But the fact is burglars are opportunists who look for an easy target and the presence of a burglar alarm makes your property an less attractive proposition to a burglar.

 The Metropolitan Police advise that "Alarm systems are a worthwhile investment in the protection of your home and family.

"Studies reveal that it is far less likely that you will become the victim of a burglary at home if you have a correctly fitted and well maintained burglar alarm." (www.met.police.uk/crimeprevention/alarms.htm)
