This is a story of home burglaries in Cerritos California. Burglaries in that city were up 60% from 2011 compared 2012.
You can read the rest of the story HERE.
Part of the story said "We are very high visibility now and are using some technology and some other tactics that have already proven to be successful," Swensson said. "Our burglaries have almost shut down to zero since we started this team."
That is quite an accomplishment!!
More than likely you cannot get your own police department to cut down on home burglaries in your area but you can get some Home Burglar Alarms that act as an effective deterrent if somebody should break you to your home.
Another idea is to install some Fake Security Cameras at your house. Nothing says stay away from my property better than a security camera and no one can tell a fake one from the real thing.
