TDC Note – I wonder how much of this is due to people posting pictures of their vacations from another city while they are still in another city?

Home break-ins are more common in the summer-time and more dangerous than you think. Here are some shocking statistics about burglaries that should give you pause:

-Burglary attempts cause one out of every three assaults in residences in the United States.

-Around 95% of break-ins involve the use of force.

-Amateur criminals commit about 85% of burglaries and are more likely to be mentally ill, violent, or using drugs.

-Police only solve around 13% of burglaries and break-ins because they lack evidence or witnesses.

-Most burglars are seeking money to support a drug habit, so they are likely to be high.

-Most burglars are after everyday items like cash, laptops, guns, tools, smartphones, iPods, television sets, and jewelry.

-July and August are the most typical months for home break-ins.

-Around 66% of all burglaries are home break-ins, Safeguard the World estimated.
