The Stats For Chelmsford Burglaries! Can You Stay Off The List?

Date: 22 June 2023

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...

Chelmsford burglaries - the latest numbers

This is not good news. September 2022 saw 41 burglaries in Chelmsford.

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?


Where do burglars target in Chelmsford?

The figures show more burglaries happen in areas around shops and supermarkets. Perhaps because thieves can slip away into the crowd on a high street 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.

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?

Do the maths

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!

For complete peace of mind, our Smart Alarm Systems connect to an app that allows you to manage your home security from anywhere in the world. A tap on your phone or tablet is all it takes! Convenient notifications keep you informed so you know your home and family is protected, day and night.

How much would it cost to:

  • Replace your precious valuables?
  • Make good the damage caused during a burglary?
  • Repair the vandalism?

Even with insurance, you simply can't replace everything. And worse than the finance is the mental and emotional cost of a break in. Don't be the next victim!

How likely are you to be burgled in Chelmsford?
