5 burglaries do not occur by chance take control There are now over 40,000 reported burglaries in New Zealand per year, although estimates indicate the figure to be higher, with many not being reported. There is now a burglary approximately every 3 minutes. Insurance claims for burglaries are now more than $80 million, and about 20% of victims are uninsured. Burglary victims have an increased risk of being burgled again within the following 6 months. Most burglaries (approximately 75%) are committed during daylight. Windows are the main point of entry for a burglar at approximately 66%, compared to 33% through a door. The majority of burglaries (approximately 85%) are committed by the amateur burglar who looks for an easy opportunity. The majority of burglaries occur as a result of an opportunity in the form of open windows, unlocked doors or through lack of quality hardware. By fitting locks (as well as monitored alarms and security lighting) you can discourage the casual, amateur thief looking for an easy opportunity. Fit window locks to prevent easy entry. Remember breaking glass makes noise and attracts attention. Deadlock accessible windows to ensure that they cannot be opened easily even after glass is broken. Glue glass louvre slats in place (use epoxy resin), or fix security bars across louvre windows. Double deadlock front doors to prevent possessions being removed once the burglar is inside your home. Fit patiobolts or deadlocks to sliding and hinged doors. If you think there s a prowler outside don t get scared - get angry. Turn on all the outside lights, turn off all the inside lights, and make a very loud noise. Join your local Neighbourhood Support and Neighbourly group. STATISTICS

6 securing your home How secure your property is depends on your attitude to home security. A positive attitude means making the effort to ensure the most important steps listed below are taken. Fit reliable locks to all doors and windows. Install a quality monitored alarm system. Put security markings on all your property. Join your local Neighbourhood Support and Neighbourly group. New Zealand Fire Service A secure house should also be a safe house. For your safety, the New Zealand Fire Service recommends that each living area and bedroom be fitted with at least one smoke alarm and that every bedroom/living area has two ready means of exit in the event of an emergency. Fit security stays to all accessible windows for ventilation when home. Lock windows when going out. 2 Fit locks to accessible windows. 3 Install external lighting and alarms as appropriate. 4 Fit locks to any window that opens in your garden shed. Lock ladders and tools in the shed or the garage. 5 Back doors are often fitted with a simple two lever mortice lock or key and knob which should be used in conjunction with a strong deadbolt. The back of your house is often more vulnerable than the front. 6 Fit a lock with a deadbolt to all external doors including the connecting door between the garage and the house. 7 Fit hinge bolts to outward opening hinged doors, top and bottom. Fit sliding door deadlocks with an anti-lift device to sliding patio doors. Fit patiobolts to deck or patio doors. 8 Keep shrubs trimmed so that they do not cloak any intruders activities. Display warning signs. 3 SECURING YOUR HOME
