Winter brings with it shorter days and a greater opportunity for burglars and vandals to conduct their activities under the cover of darkness. Statistics show that the winter months typically see an increase of 20% in home burglaries with commercial premises also being targeted during these months.

It is therefore even more important to ensure that additional security measures are in place during these months.
