For the first time in over 11 weeks, the Atlas Security Control Room has reported that residential properties have incurred more positive incidents than commercial properties.
From what is believed to be caused by the further easing of the National Lockdown, residential properties have been the preferred target for criminals this week as they are finding it easier to blend in with the mass of activity with people being allowed to roam more freely.
Targets have become easier to find for criminals as many people are back at work, leaving houses unattended to during the day. It is for this reason that it is crucial to ensure that your alarm system is in perfect working condition, and more importantly that it is armed when you leave the house. It needs to be understood that although many people are returning to work, many people have lost their jobs and are struggling to find a source of income. Crime is very often the last resort for people that are desperate to feed their families.
Having a multi layered security system is key. Contact us today on 0861 585 585 to arrange a quote on a CCTV solution as well as exterior beams.
