The latest crime figures are out for Southend-on-Sea. Is your family home safe from burglary threats? Should you be worried? We compare the most recent numbers and ask, is your burglar deterrent good enough?
The good news. Across Essex, there were 1,043 burglaries in December 2018. This improved on November's number of 1,231 and October's 1,168.
What could be the reason for this? It's not that robbers take a break for the holiday season!
