The latest Chelmsford burglary stats are in. How safe is YOUR home? From Writtle to Chancellor Park, let's explore the facts behind the numbers...
This is not good news. March 2019 saw 102 burglaries in Chelmsford.
That breaks down to 3.29 households a day suffering the devastation and loss that burglars cause.
Clearly, we have a problem in the CM postcodes. So which areas are at the most risk of a break-in?
The figures show more burglaries happen in areas around shops and supermarkets. Perhaps because thieves can slip away into the crowd on a highstreet without looking suspicious?
Anyone living in or around Chelmsford Town Centre is more vulnerable and should take immediate action to secure their homes.
But don't get complacent if you live in the less urban parts of Chelmsford. Shockingly, 9 burglaries occurred in just one small residential road! A quick glance online shows a lovely street view of family homes with nice cars on driveways. It also shows that not one house has a visible burglar alarm! To burglars, this was Easy Street.
15 other Moulsham householders also suffered break-ins. 4 homes were targeted in Chelmer Village. 5 burglaries happened around Admirals Park and 7 in the Central Park area.
Across Springfield there were 12 devastated families. March also saw 2 crimes in Writtle and 4 in Galleywood.
Additionally, there were 44 more burglaries reported from areas all across Chelmsford. Every one of them is a personal tragedy for the family involved. How many could have been prevented with the right home security system?
A fake box or off-the-shelf DIY system is no challenge to a thief. Professionally installed, top quality security equipment is the best burglar deterrent. Make them walk past your home to find somewhere easier!
