How do burglars choose their next victim?
Amateur burglars are more likely to act on impulse, draw attention and leave evidence. Professionals do not…

With a lot of break-ins under their belt seasoned pros understand the value of staking out a property before making a move. They figure out the easiest targets and the best time to strike.

An experienced thief may walk past your home at the same time every day for a week. He’ll look for patterns. And your daily routine. Or… break in during the school run – just to be safe.

Often he’ll walk up and down the street and try all the front doors. He may look in your windows. Especially when the lights are on but the curtains are open. He’s sneaky. He’ll spot iPads, wireless sound systems and games consoles.

So… how do you stop a professional burglar from choosing your home?
