Burglaries and break-ins on the rise

Did you know that most burglaries take place between 10.00am and 3.00pm during the day, and often happen while someone is still at home?

The average time it takes to burglarise a house is less than ten minutes. What’s even more astonishing is that 34 percent of burglars get in through the front door, and 30 percent enter through an unlocked door or window. 

Helpful reminders

  • Ensure your home is fully secured when you leave the house or go away on holiday. 
  • Make sure your home looks occupied.
  • Leave a TV or radio on.
  • Use automatic timers on lamps when you are out at night or go away.

If the unthinkable happens and you’re targeted, we’re here to help. Remember, you can start a claim through the My Rothbury App.
