What Recent St. Louis Crime Statistics Have to Say About Home Security

If you’re a homeowner, worrying about the possibility of a break-in is an unfortunate reality you have to deal with. Here’s how the situation stacks up in terms of St Louis crime statistics, as well as what you can do about the current situation.

The High Chance of Crime

According to recent statistics, a burglary occurred around every 16.4 seconds in the year 2013. This amounted to a little over 1.9 million burglaries over the course of the year nation-wide. That is a lot of homes, and it’s likely that many of these could’ve been prevented from causing any damage had the homeowners installed home security systems beforehand. Just in the St. 2019 Louis area, in only the last week of November alone, there were over two dozen cases involving either burglary or theft. 

Prevention Is the Best Policy

Although these statistics can be daunting, both on a national and a local level, there is something you can do about it right now. In fact, your best option is to do something about it right now, since prevention is one of the best approaches to home burglary.

Your choices tend to be more limited after a burglary has occurred. But before anything has happened, you can install a home or business security system that will keep you completely informed about what’s happening in your home or business.
