Rhode Island Home Security Systems
The state of Rhode Island enjoys a violent crime rate that is lower than the national average by around 30%. However, the property crime rate in the state is slightly higher than the national average, by nearly 5%, according to RI.US and CityRating.com.*
In 2010, 6,135 burglaries were reported in the state of Rhode Island, and that figure went up to 6,822 in 2011, an increase of 11.2%, and an average of more than 18 burglaries per day across the state.
Nationally, the burglary rate is trending downward, but three of every four houses are predicted to be broken into over the next 20 years. Since burglary is so often a crime of opportunity, and since burglars are attracted to homes that offer easy access, there is actually quite a bit the typical Rhode Island resident can do to help protect their home and family against burglary.
