North Wales is not an official region of Wales but covers the areas around Wrexham, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, and Bangor. It also takes in Snowdonia National Park and the island of Anglesey
The borders of North Wales are thought to be Ceredigion and Powys to the south with Shropshire and Cheshire to the east.
North Wales may not be considered a particular crime hotspot when it comes to house burglary or criminal damage to property, but neither are homes and businesses in the region exactly free of unwanted intruders.
According to UK CrimeStats, the main crime and postcode data research and analysis platform for the UK, there were 3,197 burglaries in the North Wales region in the 12 months to February 2018.

This level of crime shows how it makes sense for anyone who cares about the security of their home or business to take measures to protect property against unwanted intruders.

PoliceUK, which studies statistics on crime and policing in the UK, has found that not only that homes and businesses without security alarms in place are up to five times more likely to get burgled. Even worse is the fact that a burgled home or business is far more liable to be hit by thieves more than once.
North Wales Police has issued advice on burglary prevention which says: "Burglars will select their targets when they think they have the best opportunity to carry out the crime undetected, with the smallest number of obstacles, such as unoccupied or insecure homes and buildings."
They recommend that burglar alarms are installed and maintained by a company that is subject to inspection by a UKAS accredited body such as the National Security Inspectorate (NSI)
Even the simplest of security steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary. The main ones, according to PoliceUK, are to:
