Based on 2010-2011 Victoria Police crime statistics and ABS Census data (references below):
You’d be surprised how often houses in your neighbourhood are being burgled every year…
Geelong/Newtown 3220: 1 in 69 houses are broken into.
Geelong West/Herne Hill/Manifold Heights 3218: 1 in 77.
South Geelong/East Geelong/Whittington 3219: 1 in 61.
Grovedale/Highton/Belmont 3216: 1 in 78.
Hamlyn Heights/Bell Park 3215: 1 in 66.
Corio/Norlane/North Shore 3214 : 1 in 30.
The higher the number, the better your suburb/postcode is. The lower the number, not so good.
Basically – regardless of where in Geelong you live, there’s still quite a high chance your street will be burgled this year.
Will it be YOUR house?
If you don’t want this to happen, one of the BEST ways to combat this is with a security alarm system from Geelong Digital Security.
We provide the best, at the best prices.
Don’t be a statistic.
Don’t buy security alarms AFTER you’ve been broken into.
It’s the worst time to do it.
If you’re proactive, you can prevent burglaries from happening, and if you’ve got CCTV or videofied systems & people do break in, you will have a much higher chance of a) finding the culprit, and b) getting your stuff back…
