How Do Burglars Choose Their Target Houses & How To Prevent Them From Targeting Your House?
Burglary is often an opportunist crime. A burglar will select a target because it offers him the best opportunity to carry out his crime undetected and with the fewest obstacles in his way.
A building that looks unoccupied and insecure is far more likely to be targeted as it would be easier for them to get in without being caught so make it as hard as possible for the burglar to get into your property;
To reduce the chance a burglar would target your house, have cameras visible so burglars know that they would be caught on camera if they attempt to burgle your house. Also, make it look like you are living in your house with timed lights or having the TV on while you go out.
