That breaks down to 1.37 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?

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.
13 other Moulsham householders also suffered break-ins. 5 burglaries happened around Great Baddow and 1 home was targeted in Chelmer Village.
Across Springfield there were 4 devastated families. September also saw 2 crimes across Writtle and Galleywood.
Additionally, there were 16 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?
