  Protect Your Home From Burglaries  

The average American home is burglarized about once every thirty years, with an average loss near $2,000.  More harmful is the loss of "peace of mind", which can take years to recover.  The FBI reports that most burglaries occur during daytime hours these days, what with so many homemakers as busy outside the home as in.  Single-family homes are about twice as likely to be burglarized as apartments.

Burglars often talk among themselves about the latest, cleverest methods to break into homes -- yours may not be as safe as you imagine.  Unfortunately, few people bother about security until something awful happens.
