Crime Statistics

Crime Statistics

Some facts from the FBI:


> Every year, over 2 million homes have a break-in or home invasion.
> Almost 10 times every hour, someone is raped.
> Almost 100 times each hour, someone is assaulted.
> 60% of rapes & nearly 40% of assaults happen during home invasions!
> Over half of all home burglaries happen during the day.
> Many burglars come through an unlocked 1st floor door or window - if they’re locked, they'll just kick in the door!
> The average take per burglary is nearly $2,000!
    It's only about $1,200 when a home has some sort of security. (And almost half of those victims forgot to turn on their alarm systems!)
> Most burglaries are never solved!
> Once you’re hit, odds are high you'll be hit again since you’ve replaced all your stolen property with brand new stuff!
