Residential Break-ins Are Becoming Increasingly Common During The Summer


Criminals use the warmer weather as an excuse to commit crimes

There is much to love about the summertime: warm weather and longer days, barbecuing, swimming, camping, and taking an out of province road trip. But there’s a downside for homeowners: home invasions and burglaries tend to increase throughout the summer.

Residential break-ins happen every 90 seconds in Canada, according to SGI Canada, and more than 80% of break-ins occur during daylight hours. According to Statistics Canada data from March to October 2020, property crime decreased by 13% (3,404 break-ins) from March to April, and peaked in July (3,948 break-ins).

Most of us feel safer when we are inside our homes. But when you are home alone, you need to be extra cautious. Your home may be the first place that the burglars check before breaking into any other house. They will probably look for valuable items and expensive electronics. Even though you are home alone, you may not be safe if you leave your doors unlocked. Your home needs to be protected with security alarms. This will allow you to be alerted if the doorbell is rung or if someone comes up to your window. This is a good idea if you want to be able to defend yourself if someone comes into your home while you are asleep. Many people have already been attacked because they didn't have security.

Home invasions and burglaries are usually very serious crimes. Home owners can be victimized by criminals who target homes during the summer months. For example, criminals can enter your home and steal your valuables. They can even take pictures of your belongings, which could be used to blackmail you. In addition, criminals can break into your home, and even commit other types of crimes.

These crimes are more common during the summer because of the increasing crime rates during the summer. Criminals use the warmer weather as an excuse to commit crimes. When criminals are looking for a safe place to hide or a place where they can rest, they often choose a home.

Many criminals look for easy targets during the summertime. The easiest target are homeowners with pools and backyard cabins. Homeowners are more likely to leave windows open, which is one of the main ways criminals gain access to homes. In addition, criminals look for easier places to hide. Criminals will also look for opportunities to commit crimes when people are away from home. The best way to avoid being a target is to secure your home. Make sure that all windows and doors are locked. You may also want to place alarms or lights on timers to make it harder for criminals to get into your home. Homeowners should also be careful when they are driving. Make sure that your car's windows are closed.

Your home may also be vulnerable to unwanted guests. If you don’t have a surveillance system, consider getting one.

I moved there from Sudbury, ON, I now have also lived in Vancouver, BC for 10 years. The talks of bad things in Red Deer is a joke. Vancouver/Lower Mainland obvs has a lot of crime with larger population & favorable weather. Compare Red Deer to Sudbury for a more accurate comparison, and I'll tell you Sudbury is by far worse. Like, by far.
