Statistics on burglary rates and incidents of criminal damage are hardly high on the list of priorities for people living in Macclesfield, but crime figures for the last 12 months still make for some sobering reading.
According to UK CrimeStats, the country's leading crime and postcode data research and analysis platform, there is an average of around two incidents of burglary or criminal damage reported to police in Macclesfield every single day.
Figures show a total of 333 recorded burglaries in the Macclesfield area in the 12 months to August 2018 and a total of 554 reported cases of criminal damage or arson.
Given these figures, it surely makes sense to consider what action you can take to protect your Macclesfield home and business against intruders.
After all, a burglary of your home or business can mean much more than the loss of precious valuables. Doors and windows can be severely damaged during a break-in, the locks will need changing, and it could result in a massive disruption to people's lives.
On top of that is the personal trauma that has been shown to affect victims of crime. People often no longer feel safe or secure at home or work.
That the statistical chances of your Macclesfield home or property being burgled will count for nothing if it is your home or property that has been the target of intruders.
PoliceUK will tell you that homes and businesses without adequate burglar alarms in place are five times more likely to suffer a break-in that those who have taken the trouble to install a proper security system.
