Research Revealed States In Australia With Highest Home Burglaries
One of the worst feelings anyone could ever have is to be a victim of burglary in their homes, the very place they thought they feel safe. This is why many homeowners are turning to security windows and doors because they do not want a random stranger with bad intentions to trespass on their private place and snatch away their most important belongings. Burglars usually steal jewellery, appliances and electronic devices because these are worth a lot of money but it also means that the hard-earned money of the rightful owners is snatched away from them.
In the latest research conducted by Budget Direct Insurance entitled Home Burglary in Australia Statistics 2018, it was revealed that 225,900 burglaries have been reported in all of Australia in 2017. This means that one home burglary is occurring every three minutes. The report also revealed that over 20 per cent of the houses in Australia have been subjected to burglary.
In fact, it was reported that in 2015 Australia bags the fifth spot among countries with the highest number of burglary cases in the entire planet. These numbers are not very comforting which should prompt every homeowner to think about their home security and how effective it is.
From the same report, it was found out that one state in particular has the highest number of reported cases of burglary in all of Australia. According to the report made by Budget Direct in 2017, the state with the highest percentage of burglaries considering its population is the Northern Territory because 5 per cent of the households are experiencing break-ins.
Northern Territory takes home the crown when the population percentage is considered but looking at the numbers will reveal that Victoria has the highest number of burglaries in all of Australia with 65,200 reported cases. Reported cases in Northern Territory are only 3,200. This is a reminder to everyone especially in Victoria to install security windows and doors and to make sure their security system is efficient and operates perfectly in order to avoid being a victim of future burglaries.
