Bexley Burglary Figuresby Brian HSS on 02/29/16
Bexleyheath is one of the safest Boroughs in Greater London.
Police Burglary figures released on their crime figures website for Bexleyheath show there were 694 reported residential burglaries in a rolling 12 month period to January 2016. A 19% reduction on the 858 recorded for same period ending January 2015. However, there have been 86 recorded residential burglaries for January 2016.
(Damage to buildings/premises that appears to have been caused by a person attempting to enter to commit a burglary is also counted as burglary.)
Sadly 694 victims equates to 13+ per week. Most burglaries are committed by opportunists who look for certain “weaknesses” in a property. No house can be made totally secure because we have glass windows, but there is lots you CAN do to make your home less “attractive” to an opportunist burglar.
