Guest post and infographic supplied by the Oakpark Group 

Burglary continues to be a risk to homeowners, as well as both landlords and tenants. The damage done by break-ins is far more than just the valuables stolen. Theft and burglary are the most common type of crime in England and Wales. Additionally, in 2017 there were over 2,619,450 recorded burglaries in the UK. The police expect this number to rise moving forward.

Oakpark Group, a home security company, has created the infographic below to show the statistics of rising crime rates in the UK and provide some advice on how you can protect your home and help reduce your risk of burglary. For example, homes with an effective intruder alarm system are 80% more secure than those without one.
