Crime figures for 2015, released by the Office for National Statistics in April 2016, show that while non-domestic burglaries have fallen compared to 2014, the number of criminal damage and arson incidents have risen.
The recent burglary at a depository in London’s jewellery quarter has highlighted the risks around commercial property. The true extent of losses for customers is yet to be determined but it is clear that loss of business opening hours, rising insurance costs and even reputational damage may result in a significant overall financial bill for the business to deal with. And with thousands of crimes committed against commercial property each year, it isn’t just high-profile crimes that can affect businesses in a big way.
A person home is a safe haven – the place where we should feel most at ease, comfortable and secure.
With homes with no security measures five times more likely to be burgled than those which have measures in place, it’s important to adopt a pre-emptive look when it comes to securing your home.
