North Carolina Home Security Systems
The property crime rate in North Carolina is approximately 46% higher than the national average, and the burglary rate in North Carolina is more than 50% higher than the U.S. national average, according to CrimeReporting.ncdoj.gov and CityRating.com.* That’s not good news for North Carolina residents.
In fact, in 2009, 107,830 burglaries were reported in North Carolina, which averages out to over 295 burglaries per day across the state. In 2009 344,098 total property crimes were reported in North Carolina. And in 2010, approximate loses across North Carolina due to burglary totaled $188 million, for an average loss per burglary of over $1,700.
In North Carolina -- and elsewhere -- burglary is one of the most common crimes, but the majority of burglaries are preventable, often with measures as simple as locking doors consistently. An increasing number of North Carolinians have augmented their basic home security measures with monitored home security systems. These systems are more affordable than ever, and benefit every type of household.
